Mikado Tomato Seeds
Highly sought-after, enormous, pink American heirloom.
Exclusive! Seed for the original strain of Mikado (also known as Turner's Hybrid, though it's not a hybrid!) was acquired from a local tomato farmer in Salem County, New Jersey, in 1997. This is one of the rarest and perhaps most sought-after of all the American heirloom tomatoes and we are pleased to offer it here for the first time. Originally released in1886, this is the original potato-leafed strain yielding 6-inch diameter fruit weighing as much as 1 1/2 to 2 pounds. Best for slicing- or county fair competitions!
Japanese manga artist Kiriska illustrated these tomatoes with a traditional Kitsune Fox—a recurring character in Japanese folk tales. The more tails the fox has, the more wisdom it has gained over its long life as a spirit creature.
