Big Rainbow, Heirloom
(83 - 94 days)
These meaty, golden-orange, ruby streaked, 1 - 2 pound tomatoes also go by
the moniker Rainbow. The low acid fruit grow on 6 ft. vines
that definitely require support. Although not a high yielder, fruit
production is consistent - even through hot, dry
Rainbow has a sweet, fruity taste yet still maintains a rich tomato flavor. Rainbow slices are perfect for tuna sandwiches.
In 1990 Rainbow came to the attention of SESE, a seed savers network, from Polk Co. MN thanks to Dorothy Beiswenger. It's conjectured that most, if not all, of the gold-red multicolored tomatoes have a common German heritage.
