Tomato, Siletz (Organic)
Solanum lycopersicum. 65 days. Det.
Superb, early production variety that is ideal for the Pacific Northwest. Heavy yields of big, juicy red slicers weighing up to 10 oz. Easy to grow – even in less than optimum growing conditions. Developed to be an improved Oregon Spring, it is indeed bigger and earlier with better flavor. Siletz is parthenocarpic, meaning it can set fruit without pollination, which contributes to its ability to thrive in cooler temperatures and yield many seedless fruit. Popular in our region for outdoor production on organic vegetable farms. Bred by Dr. Jim Baggett of Oregon State University and released in 1994. Verticillium and Fusarium wilt resistant.
