73 days. (Indeterminate) [New Zealand heirloom. When the 6th Earl of Edgecombe died in the 1960s, the heir to the title was a sheep farmer in New Zealand. When he traveled to England to claim the title, he brought this tomato with him. Our seed source was Dr. Carolyn Male who found it the best of her extensive 1996 tomato trials.]Attractive orange 2-3 in. globes are smooth and regular in shape, defect-free, and notably resistant to cracking, blossom end rot, and fruit diseases. Medium vines, dense foliage. The fruits have a smooth texture, hold well, and are sweet and tangy, though somewhat inconsistent in flavor under our growing conditions. The best flavor seems to develop further north.
