Bright red, slightly heart-shaped fruits are truly exceptional and I mean EXCEPTIONAL. Bred to require low amounts of nutrients (really!) which contributes to its superior flavor - this attribute naturally lends to this variety being perfect for raised beds and (large) containers.

Meaty fruits should be left on the vine until fully colored for optimal flavor which is just another great trait of this variety because they hang without degragation with ease.

 

If you only wanted to grow one kind of tomato, this would be an excellent choice.

 

HISTORY: Bred 1996 in Germany by Ulrike Behrendt specifically for organic cultivation. Flavor and resistance to fungal disease was the main focus of the selection.

 

Sold in a 3.5" pot.
