Beautiful rare heirloom tomato that is a deep pink to red blush. Full of juice and makes wonderful slicer with deep sweet flavor! Medium to large fruits; plants are beefsteak in nature and grow healthy long vines that do need staking. These plants are believed to have originated from Germany and it is said that seeds from a WWII solider were given to a lady by the last name of "Cantrell" hence the name Granny Cantrell. Wonderful tomato.

How to Save Seeds
Tomatoes are self pollinating, so separate by 50ft is sufficient. Harvest tomatoes when ripe and you can even let them set for a week or so before saving seeds. Once you are ready to harvest simply cut in half scoop out seeds and pulp into a mason jar of water for fermenting. Then seal jar with a lid and place in and warm place out of direct sunlight. After 5 to 7 days of fermenting pour out seeds floating on top of the water along with mold and then pour rest of the good seeds, on the bottom, over a fine mess strainer to catch them. Dry well in fine mesh or paper towels but turn often so they don't stick to paper.
