Kellogg’s Breakfast Tomato

Kellogg’s Breakfast Tomato was named by Darrell Kellogg, a Seed Saver Exchange (SSE) member and not the cereal! A very-large orange heirloom tomato cultivar known for its vibrant colour and sweet-yet-tangy, delicious flavour. Very popular variety in the USA.

Fruits were around 150 to 450 grams off my vine during the 2021/22 season but can get up to 900 grams.

Lovely well-balanced flavours from a very meaty almost seedless fruit.

Sow – Start on a heat mat ideally in late August to October and plant out after frost risk and soils around 10 deg at night (after 7 days consecutively).

Can start earlier if planting in a hothouse. 8 weeks on average from sowing to planting if using a heat-mat.

Spacing – 80-120cm

  • The wild ancestor of the tomato is native to western South America. These wild versions were the size of peas. Aztecs and other peoples in Mesoamerica were the first to have domesticated the fruit and used in their cooking.
  • The Spanish first introduced tomatoes to Europe, where they became used in Spanish food.
  • In France, Italy and northern Europe, the tomato was initially grown as an ornamental plant. It was regarded with suspicion as a food because botanists recognized it as a nightshade, a relative of the poisonous belladonna.
  • This was exacerbated by the interaction of the tomato’s acidic juice with pewter plates.
  • The leaves and immature fruit contains tomatine, which in large quantities would be toxic. However, the ripe fruit contains no tomatine.
