OH This tomato was sent to us by one of our long time customers and we are so glad they did, as it is an outstanding tomato. Originally from Farmer Seed and Nursery Co., Faribault, Minnesota 1955, it has been included in the work done on golden tomatoes by the Heritage Food Crops Research Trust and placed very well in their study for containing high levels Tetra-cis-Lycopene which is easily absorbed in the raw fruit and helps to promote health and fight against cancer and heart disease. The plant produces large round to oblong fruit with deep orange colour, good flavour and meaty texture. Great used fresh or in sauces. Indeterminate.
Sow in August into trays in a glasshouse. Keep soil temp at 18-20°C for ideal germination. Prick out when true leaves appear to 4cm diagonal spacing. Pot on to small pots to further develop roots.
