Availability: Out of Stock
A 1950s heirloom, 'Ace 55' has excellent, fresh tomato flavor and is a lower-acid tomato. An old favorite for canning, 5"–6" diameter, 6–8 ounce fruits are just the right size to quarter and pack into jars. Yields are exceptional; as a determinate type, the majority of the fruits ripen over a 1 to 2 week period. In areas with a long growing season, sow in succession.

I'm growing five tomato varieties from seed which I purchased from botanical interest. Of the five I've been most pleased with ACE 55 to date best germination and vigor. I am now planting most of my Ace 55 in five gallon buckets I'll look forward to seeing what fruits later in the season!
