TOP FIVE of 2016!

 

My friend, Lizz Casady, brought seed back in a napkin from a tomato in her salad at a small restaurant in Naoussa, Paros, Greece.

 

I grew it out in 2014 but it got lost amongst the hundreds of other plants and by the time I got to it, it was terribly late in the season and the fruits were almost rotten. But I saved seed from them as I was fairly certain that they were from a hybrid, so to begin the dehybridization process.

 

Fast forward to 2016... I grew this one in the greenhouse so to give it my full attention and am I ever happy that I did. "Schoolbus" yellow fruits are variable in size from 2-4 ounces,  unblemished, light and tangy, sweet and well-balanced. They have a long haning life, on and off the vine. Truly a perfect salad tomato.


HISTORY: Unknown varietal name. Brought back from Naoussa, Paros, Greece in 2013.

 

Sold in a 3.5" pot.
