We were introduced to this exceedingly fine tomato by Bill Best of Sustainable Mountain Agriculture Center at his former home outside Berea, Kentucky. Our seed comes from our friends at Southern Exposure Seed Exchange.

Here's what Bill says about this tomato: "Offered for the first time in 2006, this tomato has proven to be quite popular with many people in many places. Prior to his death in March, 2008, Vinson Watts had improved his namesake tomato for 52 summers. The original seed was from Lee County, Virginia and was given to him by his work supervisor at Berea College, Wilson Evans. Those interested in the story of this tomato can look it up on the internet since several articles in newspapers and magazines have been written about Watts and his tomato. The tomato is a large pink tomato flavored with an excellent balance of sugars and acids. It is also the most disease-resistant tomato I have grown, the result of all those summers of selection for flavor, texture, and disease resistance."

You won't be disappointed!
