Chefs are going to love cooking with it as well as eating it! Beefsteak type derived from the popular heirloom tomato "Amana Orange" captures the unique color and rich tomato tang flavor of the heirloom, but provides much earlier maturity. Wonderfully bright, almost neon, internal color and superior taste and texture for an early maturing orange tomato. Vigorous, 5-6' tall plants produce heavy yields of up to 2 dozen fruits averaging 9-16 oz and reach 6" in diameter. Good foliage protection from sunburn. Excellent for slicing and for soups and sauces because the intense color does not fade or discolor when cooked. Resists cracking.
Created from a controlled method of pollination in which the pollen of two different species or varieties is crossed by human intervention. Typical F1 varieties are deliberately created to breed a desired trait. Gardeners who use hybrid plant varieties usually purchase new seed every year, however, over several years the seed could eventually be used for open pollination
Indeterminates produce plants as large as you will allow them to grow. They have many widely spaced branches, numerous suckers, and produce tomatoes all season long. These are the varieties that can be manipulated in all sorts of fashion to make the plants conform to your needs.
