Developed by Auburn University, this is a popular tomato in the Deep South, where it performs well in the humid climate. Produces firm, smooth, meaty red fruits all season long. Plants in our test garden, which is 40 miles from Auburn University, yield about 50 pounds of tomatoes each in about two months! The meaty fruit makes a great sandwich tomato. Strong vines. Atkinson, which was developed in 1966, is similar to another old favorite, Marion. Resistant to fusarium wilt (F) and nematodes (N).
