Generations of gardeners have delighted in the flavorful fruit and unique color of heirloom tomatoes. This unique tomato dates back to the 1800’s and was brought here by Virginia Mennonites from the old country. Gourmet restaurants across the country feature this large, 1-3 pound red fruit that has clearly defined yellow-orange streaks running throughout. The color and rich, tangy flavor make this one of the most popular heirloom varieties available! This tomato is beautiful when added to salads. Mix with other heirloom varieties like Cherokee Purple or Green Zebra for a colorful presentation in salads. Also use in soups, sauces, cooked dishes, and on sandwiches for lush, vine-ripened, sun-warmed, juicy, and ready to burst flavor!! Water well in warm weather. This old-fashioned indeterminate variety will need a stake or tomato tower for support.
