Grower: Kelly

Year: 2014

Accession: 35

Seed Source: Acquired from Seedy Saturday in Nelson, BC (2010).


2014 A pick-when-unripe type that will ripen slowly inside. Not the longest keeper tomato I've harvested (Fantome Du Laos keeps longer), good flavour, not much production though, and much later than anticipated. Might be better for a longer season than mine. 4.3lbs per plant.
