Wickenburg - Prescott Heirloom


These smallish, plum-type tomatoes are excellent for fresh eating and also make a dense sauce with a "fulsome delicious" mellow balance, according to Chef Molly Beverly, our partner farmer who grew them in 2021.  The productive plants mature quickly and are tolerant of arid conditions. 

Chef Beverly also uncovered the history of this tomato in Prescott and beyond, linking it to former State Senator John Upton Hays who grew it in Prescott for years and shared the seed widely ... as well as to Dr. Floyd Burton Bralliar who likely developed the variety in Wickenburg, AZ  Read the full story here.  From our Seed Bank Collection

Too early to tell. Dog Stepped on the plant but it's coming back lots of small green tomatoes.

Looking very good so far!

These tomatoes, though planted late, have nearly caught up with my plants which were started much earlier and they are now blooming. They are sturdy and healthy; I am looking forward to trying the fruit, will review again after I get some ripe ones.

Wickenburg Prescott heirloom.

So far so good. They don't seem to mind the heat, but I do shade them in the afternoon. No flowers yet.

Amy Rule
Great germination rate

So far, the Wickenburgs are strong and hopeful. No blooms yet. Plants are lush with multiple stems from the root. Largest is about 8 inches tall. Thanks!

Ellen Basso
still in seedling stage

So far they are doing well and are beginning to be hardened off for planting. I won't give a final review until they fruit out later in the season.
