She's long set the standard for reliable, round, red slicers!
This reliable slicer sets loads of midsized fruits even in hot weather, making it an excellent variety for our hot, dry summers. Excellent balance of sweet, acid, and earthy flavor in this old-timey variety. Bred by the University of Nebraska and released in 1944, we are currently unable to locate information about how or if the Sioux Nation is involved with this variety, or if the name was simply a marketing tactic employed by the University. If you know the answer, we'd love you to reach out!
Tomatoes are native to northwestern South America and by at least 500 BC they had been domesticated and were being cultivated as far north as modern-day Mexico, enjoyed by Aztec and other civilizations. They spread to Europe and the Caribbean through the Spanish colonizers, where they became staple parts of the food culture in many European countries as well.
