Organic Rose de summer Tomato HEIRLOOM If we could only grow a single slicing tomato, this would be it. A Swiss heirloom and a Brandywine cousin, truly incredible fruit flavor makes Rose de Summer our favorite tomato for sandwiches. Its soft, transluscent lucious red skin rarely cracks on even the largest of the 4 to 6 ounce tomatoes. Rose de summer is pure abundance once its starts producing and some Late Blight tolerance offers extra weeks of harvest even when disease arrives. Rose de Summer is a dependable and beautiful tomato for general purpose use (we like just eating them out of the garden). Its fruits are blocky, on the squat side, with a warm hue that is nearly peachy, often with a spot of yellow. Their skin is smooth and taut, pulled against a unique "architecture" that suggests subtle vertical ribbing. The flesh is tasty, great when eaten fresh, cooking, slicing, and saucing but especially good FRESH! Plucking them off the vine, you know you're getting something eminently useful. Very productive. VERY RARE! 71 days from transplant.
Chances are if you grow this great tomato you will be the only one in your area that has it. A great reason to grow if you sell at Farmer' Markets!Rose de Summer Slicing Tomato - Organic
(80 days) Open-pollinated. Indeterminate. This Swiss émigré could be considered the Brandywine of continental Europe. Like Brandywine, has many strains, and is widely considered in France, Germany and Switzerland to be the best-flavored tomato. Only medium-sized yet delivers the robust flavor of the bigger types. It bested some formidable competition in my trials—including June Pink, Gulf State Market and the celebrated Eva Purple Ball—with a rich sweetness the others couldn’t match. I enjoyed one juicy 5 oz translucent smooth pink fruit after another. No slouch in the appearance department either, the unblemished globes are perfectly round, the soft skins not excessively fragile and the color and size very attractive, making it another excellent field-to-market variety that does not require high tunnels. Some LB tolerance. Degree of difficulty is Indeterminate but well worth the very small degree of challenge. 75 days to maturity at most.
