Tomato, Pilu KS (Organic)
$3.50 – $12.50
Solanum lycopersicum. 70-75 days. Indet.
High quality, red greenhouse tomato bred in Germany for biodynamic agriculture. Seemingly endless clusters of 6 or 7 fruit can be harvested vine ripened by the bunch. The tennis ball shaped, 3 oz tomatoes make us think, “Wow! Can a tomato be more round?” Fruit begin ripening mid season and continue to produce well into the fall after most other tomatoes give up. Firm enough for wholesale and/or making the trip to market, and juicy, too. Flavor is a very good balance of sweet and acidic. In Northern European greenhouse production, the tall plants are usually heavily pruned to reduce risk of leaf diseases. Alternatively, we plant Pilu KS outdoors, using a Florida weave and minimal pruning with good results. Plants thrive in our cool, wet spring and fall weather. Proven resistance to Cladosporium (tomato leaf mold) and Fusarium. A rock star that is great for main season outdoor production in Oregon. Bred in Germany by Richard Specht and released by Kultursaat, an organization that helps fund and register plant breeding projects in the European Union.
