We were introduced to this variety by Tomato Whisperer Karen of Michigan Heirlooms. Her seeds were sourced from legendary seedsman Neil Lockhart who asserted the "fabulous flavor" of Indiana Red. Exceptional for fresh eating or saucing, the drier, meaty consistency of these large heart-shaped tomatoes mean they are perfect for delicious fried green tomatoes as well.
