77 days. (Indeterminate) [West Virginia family heirloom before 1948, originally from Italian seed stock. named and introduced by SESE in 1983 in honor of 'Tappy' who selected for regular shape, small cores, few seeds, and fine flavor. This exclusive was the first heirloom we introduced.] 'Tappy's Finest' was selected in the mountains of West Virginia and it performs best where summers are moderate to cool. Fruits are pink-red, large, and average 14-16 oz, sometimes up to 2 lbs., and are very meaty. The slightly irregular fruits are somewhat flattened with indentations prominent at the shoulders. An excellent tomato for processing, for salad use, sandwiches, or juice. Makes a delicious tomato juice. Like all sweet, good-flavored tomatoes, it is not a heavy producer, but it has won several independent flavor trials. Pkt.
