Orange Banana Heirloom tomato seeds

(Solanum lycopersicum)

78 days. Open polinated Heirloom. Indeterm. Vigorous tomato plant yields loads of sweet flavored, 3 to 4" long plum shaped tomatoes. The color is just beautiful - bright, solid, vibrant orange. The fruits are reliably blemish free and perfect. Tastey enough for fresh eating. Also makes a gorgeous orange, excellently flavored sauce. We like to make salsa with these and some red and purple peppers and green cilantro - stunning! A canner's favorite - ripens quite a few tomatoes at one time. It did well for us in this last cool, wet summer.

Germinated at 96%. .

Sun:Full sun.
Water:Water weekly if necessary. Tomatoes appreciate mulch, but wait until soil has warmed and plants are growing fast.
