Tomato, Orange Currant (Organic)

Solanum sp. Orange Currant. 65-70 days. Indet.

Produces immense quantities of miniature (¼ – ½”) tomatoes similar to other currant types but with good orange color and split resistance. Skin is thick, but flavor is excellent, fruity and sweet. They delightfully pop in your mouth! Tiny fruit holds quality for a long time both on and off the plant. Very productive, tall, non-shattering vines. Variety given to The Seed Ambassadors Project by Gerhard Bohl, a tomato seed collector in Germany.

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. Due to their wild nature, currant tomatoes are more likely to cross-pollinate than other tomatoes; isolate by 200′ for seed saving purposes.
