Item details

Unlike other Etsy sellers that buy a large package of seed from a seed company or vendor and break it down into smaller packets, we grow all our own seed and tend them by hand throughout the entire cycle from seed to seed.

Species: Solanum lycopersicum (Lycopersicon esculentum).

While many consider Wisconsin 55 to be an heirloom variety, it is actually an open-pollinated variety developed at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, Wisconsin. The variety was bred by J.C. Walker, using crosses with John Baer, Del Monte, Early Balmore, and Redskin as parents. The fruits are about 4-12 ounces and are a nice round to oblate, red tomato. The variety consistently produce blemish free, evenly red fruits in even under the harshest summer conditions. Indeterminate plants have regular leaves. A mid-season variety, ripening at about 80 days after transplanting.

We recommend growing Wisconsin 55 tomatoes in full sun. They do not require a pollinator in order to produce fruit. Planting and care instructions are included on the back of your receipt with each purchase.

These seeds were hand harvested from disease-free, organically-grown fruits grown near Tomah, Wisconsin, during the summer and fall of 2016. Although we are not certified organic because our operation occurs at a residence as part of a Seed Savers Exchange membership rather than a large scale farm, we follow the same practices used by organic farmers for growing our stock plants and the AOSA Standards for seed viability and quality control standards used by commercial seed companies.
