Siletz Slicer / Red / 14-16 ounces / 70 –75 days / Open Pollinated / Determinate. Reliable and early! Flavor-packed, 4 to 5-inch, deep-red slicing tomatoes are nearly seedless. Vigorous plant. Good acid taste in an early tomato. Developed by Dr. Jim Baggett at Oregon State University, these plants yield well in cooler weather. (“I decided last year to grow this tomato in a grow bag and was amazed at the results compared to previous years growing it in raised beds. Maybe it was the new soil or a better location, but it was the first to produce the most beautiful clusters of red 14 to 16-ounce (!) tomatoes. It is a determinate, but for me it produced all summer long and was one of the last to survive in my garden. Very compact and not much staking needed. Easy to slice, juicy and delicious. This will definitely be a mainstay in my summer garden.”) Small space / Container friendly.  *Photo courtesy of Territorial Seed Company
