This famous old French variety gives early crops of apricot-coloured, four ounce fruits the size of a golf ball or slightly larger, borne on elongated trusses that bear fruit continuously. It is a fabulous fresh-eating tomato with an explosive, intense flavour that shines through any salad dressing with ease. The outer walls are thick and meaty, with just enough juice to provide a full-bodied, citrus-like flavour that surprises all who try it for the first time. The yellow-orange skin encloses beautiful red-mottled flesh inside. This plant appears resistant to many diseases that normally plague tomatoes. The fruits are held in clusters of six to eight. And finally, it is the last plant still bearing ripe fruits in our unheated trial greenhose, today is December 11th! Indeterminate
Seeds are surface-sown or covered only slightly. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Containers are held in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take anywhere from 3-10 days. Move sprouting plantings immediately to bright light conditions, such as a south-facing window. Inadequate light is a frequent cause of failure of young seedlings. At about the time of last frost, set out seedlings into pots. Remove side-shoots and support the plant.
