Heirloom Big Rainbow Tomato
This is a large, yellow and red marbled tomato. Smooth delicious, juicy and fruity flavour. It will become a favourite if you don’t already know it. Great for slicing and eating fresh. As fruits ripen they have a rainbow appearance: greens on the shoulder, yellow, orange and gold in the middle, and red on the blossom end with a swirl of colour inside too. Medium tall vine. Will need to be staked. Fruit are often over 200 gm. 85 days. Indeterminate.
The plants want good soil, lots of sun and heat, regular feeding, and careful staking. Your reward will be sweet fruit for many weeks, plus the rich, unmistakable Tomato scent that alone is enough to make your mouth water.
