This round, smooth fruit with a brilliant orange uniform color weighs around 8-10 oz. It is a midseason indeterminate tomato that grows well in northern and cooler climates . It is a family heirloom from Maine. Some say it is called "Valencia" because it looks like a Valencia orange, while others suspect it came from Valencia, Spain. The tomato has an excellent, full, complex tomato taste, with a great balance of acidic and sweet. It is meaty and rich with few seeds. Tasters describe the Valencia as bursting with flavor, rich and buttery as well as pineapple-like, sweet and refreshing.
