Tomato, Gobstopper (Organic)
Solanum lycopersicum. Yellow/Green Cherry. 60 days. Indet.
Early yellow cherry tomato with green flesh that is visible through the skin. A fruity and sweet, de-hybridized Sungold with a unique outcome, completely unlike its parent. We find it less fruity than Sungold, with different flavor characteristics. Split resistant and keeps very well both on the plant and once harvested. Strong vines grow very tall. Thrives in climates such as western Oregon and Ireland. Bred by Madeline McKeever of Brown Envelope Seeds, Ireland, and she was our original seed source. Introduced to the US by the Seed Ambassadors Project in 2008.
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.
