Solanum lycopersicum



Full Sun

70 Days to Harvest 

8-12 oz. fruits (Fist Sized)

Plants 2’-3’ apart unstaked, 1’-2’ staked


Heirloom flavor from a modern tomato, bred by Bradley Gates of Wild Boar Farm in Napa CA. One of the earliest ripening full size tomatoes. It has vibrant crisp red and green stripes that are unlike any other striped tomato I’ve ever seen, and an outstanding sweet and complex flavor that almost tastes lightly salted.. Compact plants that hold up well under disease pressure in trial plantings. 


Tomatoes grow best in rich fertile soil with regular water. Too much nitrogen will cause plants to put on lots of leaves but delay fruiting. Staking or caging allows closer spacing, helps keep fruit off the ground and away from a number of pests, and improves air flow, helping to keep disease pressure down. Pruning will also aid in air flow and help fruit ripen earlier.
