Hailey's Rainbow Pascal tomato is a stunning tomato variety with a bicolor foliage and beautiful bicolor medium size tomatoes which turn from green with light green stripes to yellow with orange stripes. The seeds were sent to us by one of our customer and fellow tomato lovers. This tomato variety is slightly different than the Dean's Haley rainbow tomato. Our customer advised that when Dean Slater was working on breeding Haley's Rainbow, he sent to his friend Pascal a non stabilized version of the tomato he was breeding. Pascal developed a strain 2 of Haley's Rainbow which is the one we have. Clearly the tomatoes we have are different than Dean's Haley Rainbow both in terms of size and shape and the foliage is much more variegated. The Hailey's Rainbow Pascal tomato plants are a show stopper in the garden and the tomatoes have an excellent taste almost similar to an exotic fruit, sweet and tangy at the same time. This is one of the variety that is winner for us this year for its resilience, beauty, productivity and taste. Seeds grown and seed saved in Cork, Ireland.
