Burbank Tomato

The famous horticulturalist, Luther Burbank, from whom the tomato takes its name, developed the Burbank tomato in 1914. The tomato has a classic taste that is acidic yet sweet. The fruits are relatively small and uniform, with a deep red color. The Burbank is particularly special because it is very nutritious as it has the highest total free amino acids of all tomatoes tested.
