The Indian Reservation tomato is a very rare Heirloom variety. The seeds were sent by George Pesta, an elderly collector of tomatoes to Craig LeHoullier in the early 1990s who listed it in the SSE yearbook. Nobody knows for sure where George Pesta obtained the variety. This indeterminate heirloom beefsteak variety produces high yields of beautiful pink and yellow bicolor fruits, between 200 g and 400 g, with a very good flavor. The Indian Reservation tomato plants can grow up to 1.8m. This heirloom tomato is not just any tomato, it is a piece of history and resilience. These tomato seeds have been grown and harvested in Cork, Ireland.
