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.
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.
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.
