Amish Gold Tomato is quite a rare variety. Amish Gold is a cross between Amish Paste tomato and Sungold, created by, Jeff Dawson. The indeterminate plant produces large yields of oblong shaped golden tomatoes. The fruit is said to have the golden color and the taste of the Sungold with the meatiness of the Amish Paste. In our trials, this tomato certainly stands out amongst our other tomatoes however we find the taste a bit acidic making it perfect for a summer salad. Seeds grown and seed saved in Cork, Ireland.
