Southern Exposure Seed Exchange
Family heirloom given to Dustin Swanland by his Italian aunt. Introduced 2012 by SESE. Delicious fruit (always a hit at our tomato tastings)! Vigorous and productive plants! But… a challenging variety for us to offer. Plants vary a lot, even after years of vigorous selection by us. It tends strongly toward the intensely fruity, sweet, luscious orange spheres we originally described. Many plants bear red fruits, and a wide range of orange types is present as well, in clusters of 2-12 and sizes of ½ - 1½ in. We’re unsure just how diverse this variety was before we received it, and why it keeps frustrating our selection efforts. But it’s so delicious we carry it anyway! 75 days. (Indeterminate) Solanum lycopersicum Family: solanaceae (nightshade).
