Hamson DX 52-12

There’s a new tomato on the block and it would seem to have everyone raving.  It’s name is DX 52-12 or Hamson DX 52-12 or more simply (thank goodness) Hamson.  I picked one up today at the IFA because I keep hearing about it; but I really didn’t know much about it…until now.

The Hamson DX-52-12 was developed by Dr. Alvin Hamson, the former Utah State University Extension Service vegetable specialist. Dr. Hamson was contacted by the Campbell Soup Company” who were looking for a better tomato for Utah growers. “This tomato had to fit our season, so it had to mature in about 70 days. We wanted good size but it did not need to be the largest. We were looking for a firm tomato that had small cellular spaces and would hold its shape. The result was a variety they called DX54. Campbell’s ended up going with California grown tomatoes which were much cheaper to grow, but Hamson continued to develop his variety until he came up with the DX 52-12.  So perfectly suited to Utah, Larry Sagers suggests this tomato be named the Utah State Vegetable!

Here’s the facts:

-60-70 days to maturity
-Large, smooth, deep red fruits on semi-determinate vines with good foliage cover.
-Solid interior with excellent appearance and flavor. 
-This variety will set fruit at extremes of temperature (heat and cold) and otherwise performs well under adverse conditions. 
-Developed in Utah, will mature evenly.  
-Good for slicing and canning.
