Default San Jose Canner

Anyone here familiar with San Jose Canner?
It was released by Chas. C. Navlet Co. in about 1919. It's most likely a sport, selection, or re-naming of Santa Clara Canner, which is still existent, albeit rare.

As far as I can tell, the variety is extinct. I've been researching it for some time. But I'd love to know more.|

The attached image is from Navlet's 1919 catalog.

I grew Santa Clara a few years ago and liked it just fine but just have not gotten around to growing it again. Always too many new ones to try.

Same here but probably won't grow it againas you just said,just too many others with higher priority.

If you look at Tania's link again you'll see that Bill Minkey got it from me back in 1996.

I have, and am growing, Santa Clara Canner -- I live in Santa Clara County and am working with as many local heirloom varieties as I can.

I'm also working with Diener (a supposed SCC offspring) and Riverside (http://www.victoryseeds.com/tomato_riverside.html) which is a SCC cross with Marvana/

I've never managed to come across San Jose Canner, though, and there are so few references to it, it seems to have vanished within a few years of its release.

I have grown Diener as well as you can see from the following link.
