This yellow-orange heirloom cherry tomato from Siberia is one of the earliest around, but it also produces its 1" fruit throughout the summer into fall. Not as sweet as modern 'Sun Gold' hybrids, this old heirloom has a great tomato flavor and beautiful color. The potato-leaved, indeterminate plants are healthy and productive, and perform equally well in cold areas and hot. Also known as 'Galina's Yellow.'

These seeds were grown by Dusty Hinz and Zach Binsfeld in Delano, Minnesota.

GROWING TIPS: Start seeds indoors in March or early April, transplant outside after danger of last frost. Space plants 2 to 3 feet apart. They will benefit from a trellis or tomato cage. Full sun preferred.
