Tomato, Flaming Burst (Organic)

Solanum lycopersicum. Orange Cherry. 70 days. Indet.

Small, golden orange, mini-pear cherry tomato with a flavor that will have you coming back for more. Sweet and tangy with a firm texture, Flaming Burst offers vast taste and texture improvements over the standard Yellow Pear. The 1 oz fruit are split resistant, making them a great choice for market growers. High yielding plants are short indeterminates that grow to a manageable 4′ tall. Bred by Tom Wagner, selected from a cross with the famed Jaune Flamme variety from which it shares many traits, including color and sweetness. Sure to become a Pacific Northwest classic.

Geographical Origin


Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil as early as February, but no later than April. Keep warm and well-watered. Up pot seedlings into 4” pots once they have two true leaves. Transplant into the garden once danger of frost has passed.

Seed Saving

Collect seeds from ripe fruit by squeezing into a jar and add 25% more water. Wait a few days for mold to form. When seeds sink and gel-sac is gone, stir, add water, then decant and rinse to clean. Dry thoroughly. Tomatoes are mostly self-pollinating; isolation is not usually needed for seeds to be true to type.

    I grew these summer 2021, because they were new, and I’m so glad I did. I love these, various shades of color, sweet, and they are far better than any other pear tomato I’ve ever had. This tom will be a staple. Thank You.

    Grew for the first time in 2021 and very impressed. About 4 ft tall in a high tunnel with twine support, was a bit lax and branchy but very productive and quite early ripening, carried on all season. Fruit is on the firm side (no splitting!) without being at all tough, and flavor was excellent, with a real burst of sweetness. Taste similar to Jaune Flamme. Beautiful eye catching color and shape. Some variance in fruit size – there were some random tiny ones – but all good as we are using in mixed cherry tom baskets. One we found ourselves snacking on as we worked. Will be growing again
