The man that was the Indiana Jones of the tomato world had a tomato named after him. Dr. Blood was one of the pioneers in tomato breeding and a leading field researcher that found and saved seeds from plants all over South America. In the 1930’s he was responsible for finding hundreds of varieties of locally grown and wild tomatoes and was one of the top men at the old Bureau of Plant Industry. This tomato has a bright red color, good taste and some resistance to disease. This one is a great grandparent to many varieties.
