Marianna's Peace,     Heirloom      

      (80 - 84 days)    Peace is often compared to Pink Brandywine, but Peace is earlier and more productive during hot spells.  Otherwise its size and remarkably good flavor are judged to exceed Pink Brandywine.   the

Marianna's Peace was named by TomatoFest owner, Gary Ibsen, to honor Marianne Worscheck Tibbetts (1927-2013) who as a schoolgirl escaped being taken by the Russians to a labor camp by jumping from a moving truck, and then though shot in the leg while crossing the Czech border, she managed to cross the Austrian Alps to freedom in Vienna.  The seeds were given to Gary by Marianna's sister.
