Orange Banana Plum Tomato Seedlings
Certified Organic Seed
Makes colorful sauce and ketchup.
This mango colored plum tomato is fun for all ages! While the name refers to the color alone (and not the flavor) the dense fruits make a nicely colored, bright orange sauce, that you can even use to make ketchup! We've heard that kids that don't like tomato sauce will definitely give it a try when its orange! Plants are indeterminate and require staking, but shorter, reaching only 5 feet in height. This variety can also be used raw as a colorful addition to sliced tomato platters, bruschetta and tomato salads.

Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost, then transplant outdoors to indicated spacing after all threat of frost has passed. All tomatoes benefit from staking; indeterminate varieties require it. Prune tomatoes when they reach about 24" high and are starting to produce small suckers. Keep plants from coming into contact with the soil, and water at the roots as often as possible to prevent the spread of soil borne disease. When fruit begin to become fully ripe, harvest every couple of days for the highest quality fruit. At the end of the season, harvest any fruits that have begun to take on color to ripen indoors.
