Dwarf Orange Cream Tomato Irish grown

€3,25 EUR

Dream in Orange!

Dwarf Orange Cream is a great tasting tomato from the Dwarf Tomato Project. The Dwarf Orange Cream originated from a cross made in 2006 by Patrina Nuske small between Golden Dwarf Champion and Elbe. This mid-season rugose potato leaf Dwarf reaches about 1 m in height. Plants produce medium to large smooth oblate pale orange fruits with a good tang and intense flavor. We love them in our salads. Beautiful color and refreshing taste. The Dwarf orange cream variety was selected and named by Craig LeHoullier who co-manages the Dwarf Tomato Project with Patrina, and he says Dwarf Orange Cream is among the best of new dwarfs from the project. This variety has been pledged to the Open Source Seed Initiative (OSSI).  Free the seeds! Seeds grown and seed saved in Cork, Ireland.

The OSSI is working to maintain fair and open access to plant genetic diversity worldwide and ensuring freedom to use these resources for farmers, gardeners, breeders, and communities of this and future generations. Free the Seed!
