Pruden’s Purple

Solanum lycopersicum



Full Sun

Shows some Late Blight Tolerance

67 Days to Harvest 

Fruit 1 pound and up

Plants 2’-3’ apart unstaked, 1’-2’ staked


A large pink tomato with phenomenal flavor, similar to Brandywine except for two important differences. It comes in earlier, and has shown some tolerance to Late Blight, (meaning they will produce longer and better in the presence of Late Blight than other varieties). Large fruit, often over 1lb, and resistant to cracking and have a knock out flavor, rich, full bodied, and a little sweet.


Tomatoes grow best in rich fertile soil with regular water. Too much nitrogen will cause plants to put on lots of leaves but delay fruiting. Staking or caging allows closer spacing, helps keep fruit off the ground and away from a number of pests, and improves air flow, helping to keep disease pressure down. Pruning will also aid in air flow and help fruit ripen earlier.
