Tomato, Tonnelet (Organic)

Solanum lycopersicum. Red with Yellow Stripes. 75 days. Indet.

Roma-like, 2” long fruit are produced in clusters of 6 or more with beautiful yellow tiger stripes on red, 2 oz fruit. Flavor is fragrant and sweet. A variety developed in 1990 by Belgian tomato collector, Luc Fichot, and named after its fruit shape that resembles the antique vases, or kegs, known as tonnelet. Given to The Seed Ambassadors Project in 2007 by the Belgian seed company, Belle Époque.


Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil as early as February, but no later than April. Keep warm and well-watered. Transplant seedlings into 4” pots when they have their first two true leaves. Transplant into the garden after danger of frost has past, typically late May in western Oregon.

Seed Saving

Collect seeds from ripe fruit. Place in a small jar and add 50% more water. Wait for mold to form. When seeds sink and gel-sac is gone, decant to clean and dry on windowsill.
