MOST NOTICED TRIAL VARIETY OF 2016!
Excellent! Fruits come on early, beginning a deep bluish - purple, as shown in the lower right of the photo above. They seem to need a good amount of heat to fully mature into dark brick-red exteriors with dark pink flesh and green gel around seeds. Allow to fully ripen for best flavor which is sweet and well-rounded! An added bonus is that they also have a long hang life on the vine and off, without deterioration.
The leaves of this variety have a slightly bluish tint and tend to curl up on the edges a bit, so don't over-water accidently!
HISTORY: Released in 2012, it was bred by Tom Wagner, a tomato and potato breeder from Washington state, the founder of Tater Mater Seed and New World Seeds & Tubers. Named for Helsing Junction Farm near Rochester, Washington, in the Chehalis River Valley.
