Mikado Tomato Seeds Art Pack

Where art and horticulture meet.

Seeds:  Mikado was once known as Turner's Hybrid. After Turner shared the seeds, it was renamed after a once popular and now controversial opera. It then took a back seat to its own progeny; the now famous Brandywine that started the heirloom tomato craze in contemporary times was bred from Mikado. Just as the Kitsune Fox's many tails signal its wisdom, the many tales of Mikado hint at its valuable place in the pantheon of garden tomato history.

Yields 6" diameter fruit weighing as much as 1½-2 lbs. Best for slicing or county fair competitions!

Specific:  Solanum lycopersicum.

Artwork by Kiriska. The Seattle-based artist illustrated these tomatoes with a traditional Kitsune Fox, a recurring character in Japanese folk tales. The more tails the fox has, the more wisdom it has gained over its long life as a spirit creature.
