Chef's Choice F1 (hybrid medium orange tomato)
ALL AMERICA SELECTIONS AWARD WINNER. This crack-resistant hybrid originated with the heirloom Amana Orange and retains that wonderful old-fashioned flavor while adding some improvements. The hybrid has 9 to 12 oz. tomatoes that mature much earlier than Amana Orange and do not crack. The color both inside and out is a beautiful glowing orange that holds its intensity even when tomatoes are cooked, lending itself to creative uses by chefs. Vigorous plants are quite productive and are resistant to Tobacco Mosaic Virus and anthracnose. Indeterminate plants mean they will need a tall tomato cage for proper support. 75 days. A good sub, if sold out, is Orange Blossom or Kentucky Beefsteak.
