Why on Earth would you want a Tomato named Alaska in Texas and Louisiana? Here is why! This is one of the fastest ripening Tomatos you can grow. You will get a ton of these little beauties long before the heat shuts down other long season types. No, they are not big..3 oz is typical but you will get a ton of them, really quick and you know what else? They are quite good! Not quite perfectly round, but mostly so. A great canner as well as a salad Tomato. As the years go by, Alaska Fancy continues to impress me. I notice in my garden, in addition to being early, it cranks out fruit late. Each year I reach a point where is am just sick of Tomatos. On some random day in July I drop the hammer on the whole field. Many of the varieties have played out by this time. As I am driving over (and enjoying the destruction!) I hit the group of Alaskas. I pause, note that they are STILL producing -and then pulverize them along with the others.
