Tomato, Siberian Orange (Organic)

Solanum lycopersicum. Orange Paste. 80 days. Indet.

Plump, pear-shaped paste tomatoes are amazing cooked and also delicious for fresh eating. A brilliant orange sherbet color, incredibly sweet and fruity. Makes candy sweet orange tomato sauce that would make phenomenal ketchup. Tall, wispy vines produce 4-8 oz fruit with very few seeds. We have planted it in the greenhouse for a bountiful harvest, but it does fine outside with good fertility. Given to us by Gerhald Bohl in Germany and one of his favorites of the over 3,000 tomatoes he grows. (And you thought we grew a lot of tomatoes!?) We received it as Sibirische Orange which means Siberian Orange in a strange half translated way. Sorry for the slight renaming, we know there are a few people out there who will not approve.

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.

    Where did you grow this variety? Northeastern US

    These fellas did amazingly in our temperate rain forest in SW Virginia. Very productive vines with some enormous pound+ fruit, though perhaps an average of 8-10oz. Some were a little dry or seemed as though they got sunburnt, but the flavor of the ones that were ripened and moist was lovely. They were a very nice paste that made for a tasty slicer too.
