OP Gifted to us by Mark Christensen of the Heritage Food Crops Research Trust as one of the confirmed “tomato stars” in their studies to analyse and catalogue tomatoes that prove in the lab to hold high levels of Tetra-cis-lycopene. This highly beneficial bioavailable form of lycopene which can help prevent cancer, exhibits as a golden-orange or tangerine colour in the fruit of the tomato. This tomato has this lycopene in spades, with a rich orange colour in bite sized grape shaped fruit kids will love to eat straight out of the garden. Ideal for salads or any dish you want to draw the eye to. Productive producer late into the season. Indeterminate.
Sow in August into trays in a glasshouse. Keep soil temp above 18°C for ideal germination. Prick out when true leaves appear to 2.5cm diagonal spacing. Transplant after last frost to 40cm diagonal spacing into fertile ground in direct sun. Stake and de-lateral as needed.
