Developed at Oregon State University by Dr. James Baggett and Dr. Jim Myers. Some resistance to late-blight, but not immune under harsh conditions. Gardeners can expect a 2-3 week longer harvest period than susceptible tomato cultivars. Legend produces amazingly sweet tomatoes with just the right amount of acid – a great balancing act. Sets fruit well under cool temperatures and contains very few seeds. Large, round, glossy red fruits measure 4-5”. Determinate, 65 days.
