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 (about 76 days). 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. It is not one of the famous heirlooms. This may be because it doesn't have an unusual color or shape the qualities that make other heirlooms so attractive and photographable. Yet it is hard to find and is a threatened variety.
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. It has been described as bursting with flavor, rich and buttery as well as pineapple-like, sweet and refreshing, like a really ripe ground cherry.
