- Kickapoo Creek
Temporary borrowed description — Thick stemmed, large and robust plants produce softball-sized pink fruits that are slightly ribbed from stem to blossom end. They are meaty, yet juicy with great flavor. Perfect for using fresh, yet meaty enough for sauces. History: In the spring of 2010, I received two plants from a gentleman who owns a vineyard in Kickapoo Creek, Illinois. They were given to him by one of his employees, saying that her family back in Germany had been growing them for years. I feel fortunate to have received them as they are an excellent example of why heirlooms are so important for so many reasons. Since I know no other history, I've decided to call this tomato 'Kickapoo Creek'.
