Canadian Heirlooms

  1. Red; Paste/Sauce; Certified Organic
    Bellstar Tomato

    Red; Paste/Sauce; Certified Organic

    (65 days) Determinate. Aka 'Bellestar'. I'm so excited to have found this tomato! It was developed in 1981 by Dr. Jack Metcalf, of the Smithfield Experimental Farm in Trenton, Ontario, which is about an hour away from us so it's really local. Dr. Jack did a great job - it matures much earlier than most other plum tomatoes, making it a cool-season champion, yet its fruit is larger than those of most of its peers. The compact plants produce large quantities of rich-tasting fruit that are easy to pick and great for fresh eating as well as making fabulous sauce.
