Indeterminate. 90 day dwarf type! A great and suitable choice for container gardening or can be planted about two feet apart in the ground.This wonderful tomato was introduced by Burpee in 1901. It was introduced in 1896 by the horticultural editor of The Rural New Yorker, Dr. Walter Van Fleet of Monmouth County, New Jersey. It was supplied to growers, in trial packets, in 1900 by W. Atlee Burpee & Company. The following year, it was named 'Quarter Century' to celebrate the company's 25th anniversary. The variety appeared as a sport in the third generation from a cross between 'Lorillard', a bright scarlet fruit with ordinary type of foliage, and 'Dwarf Champion', a pinkish-red fruit of dwarf habit. An all around mild, flavorful, all-purpose heirloom tomato! Fruits range in size from 10 to 12 oz. Disease-resistant and heat-tolerant. ~20 seeds minimum per packet.
