The Earlirouge tomato was released in 1977 by Jack Metcalf of the Agriculture Canada Smithfield Experimental Farm, in Trenton, Ontario. It was probably the most commercially successful release of the eight or nine open pollinated tomato varieties developed and released there from 1967 to 1993. Like most of Metalf's cultivars, Earlirouge features deep red interiors and excellent flavor for canning or fresh use. (Original source: CV, Stokes Seeds, 1987) This variety was grown out in 2013 from seed frozen since 1988! (Seed produced in 2020.)
