70 days. One of the most productive varieties on the market! Each stem generates a bouquet of blossoms that resemble a firework explosion. Bright-yellow fruits have pointed ends and are borne in clusters. Full tomato taste with some acidity. This variety yields slightly smaller fruits than its cousin Riesentraube, the popular red fruiting version. Seeds were obtained from the Roughwood Seed Collection in 2019 which is stewarded by William Woys Weaver. According to Dr. Weaver, this very rare cultivar was featured in an 1850’s Harrisburg newspaper for Pennsylvania Dutch farmers called Der amerikanische bauer.
