Climbing Trip L Crop OP ou Italian Tree OP ou Italian Climber OP ou Giant Climbing OP
Variété citée en 1895 dans le catalogue "Everitt" à Indianapolis dans l'Indiana aux USA avec le texte suivant : Great progress has been made in late years in the improvement of the tomato. Quite in contrast with the small ill-shaped, sour specimens of a few years ago are the large, smooth, sweet fruits so easily raised now. Great rivalry exists in localities as to who ean raise the earliest or the largest tomatoes. We offer in the "Giant Climbing Tomato" the greatest novelty in this line, and whoever raises it, according to directions printed on each package, will have an attraction that will draw all eyes toward their garden.
The term "tree," frequently applied to tomatoes, is generally intented to mislead. We do not call grapes "Tree grapes," because they will climb up a trellis. The Giant Climbing Tomato needs a support to climb upon, when they will grow 10 to 15 feet high, bearing fruit all along the vine from the ground up. The tomatoes grow to weigh from 2 to 4 lbs. each, and in size 10 to 16 ins. in circumference, Nearly all the tomatoes are smooth and regular in shape ; color glossy red ; sound to the core, with very few seeds.
The flavor is
all that can be desired. They
are ever-bearing, only cut
off by frost. These tomatoes can be grown
on the garden fence,
on the sunny side
of a house or outbuilding,
or in any
a support is provided. The
more public the
more will they be admired.
