“DXX-M tomato clade is a family of short-season determinate tomatoes that are descended from a cross between DX52-12 and Jagodka. DX52-12 is an old heirloom variety that was developed to supply the Campbell’s soup company in the cold mountain valleys of northern Utah. It is descended from Moscow tomatoes (not from Russia) which were the most widely planted tomatoes in the area before being replaced by DX52-12. Jagodka is a super-early highly-productive red saladette tomato from Russia. It took the grand prize in a cold tolerance trial conducted in northern Utah. The union between these two great varieties resulted in offspring that are earlier than DX52-12 and that have larger fruits than Jagodka. Taste is delicious. Seed Saving: To maintain the genetic diversity of the variety it is recommended to save seeds from many different plants. Bred by Joseph Lofthouse”
