Climbing Trip L Crop Tomato
CLIMBING TRIP L CROP

I fell in love with this tomato in my 2013 garden. Large ( 1 lb.) dark pink - crimson tomatoes that grow as big as 6 inches across. It has meaty centers with solid divisions. It is by far the most productive tomato, often producing 2 bushels from just one plant. Plants can easily reach 12-18 feet. Tomatoes are mildly flavored and meaty with few seeds. This variety is much more suited to growing in cooler climates.
