Tomato Seedling ‘Sophie’s Choice’

Photo by Gayla Trail

I grew ‘Sophie’s Choice’ for the first time last year and it turned out to be a favourite mid-size determinant. ‘Sophie’s Choice’ is a very hardy and very productive, heirloom variety said to hail from Edmonton, Canada. Despite the dull orange-red appearance this variety has something for everyone. As an early season producer it’s a great choice (har har) if you’re looking to stagger your season and get the earliest taste of fresh tomato possible. Northern gardeners will appreciate its preference for cooler temperatures. And container growers will love it because you get a lot of average-sized tomatoes from a fairly small plant.
