2009 Unfortunately this one was cut short by an early frost, the season wasn't just quite long enough this year. Even considering that, I did get about 2lbs from this tomato. 10-16 oz non-uniform lobed fruit. Deep yellow/orange in colour. Excellent flavour, probably the best yellow I have had. Very sweet, but very rich. Didn't seem to mind the extreme heat we had this summer too much.

  • Family heirloom from the USA.
  • The variety was sent to Craig LeHoullier by John D. Green (breeder of 'Cherokee Purple') in 1992. John Green claimed that Dr. Wyche sent him the variety just before he passed away (1985), and Dr. Wyche actually called it 'Hot Yellow'.
