Harvard Square tomato
HARVARD SQUARE

New to me in 2013, I loved it - It's beautiful, it's big and it tastes great. It seems that there may be at least two different strains circulating. Mine (photographed) were Green When Ripe, with interior red marbling that permeated the exterior skin when completely ripe. Fruit size was variable from 8 oz. to over a 1 1/2 lbs.

HISTORY: First introduced in Seed Savers 2007 Yearbook by Martin Longseth of Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, who got the seed from Pat Yourell, Old Webster Farm, Sparta, Wisconsin. Martin describes it in the 2014 SSE Yearbook: "80 days, indet., regular leaf, tri-color beefsteak type to 1 lb., dark and light green plus red stripes. This was sport of Green Copia."
