Product Description
Big Rainbow Tomato is one of the most beautiful tomatoes we've seen. This open-pollinated, heirloom variety produces fruits in lovely shades of gold to scarlet and all shade variations in between. These rainbow tomatoes grow as big as 2 pounds each and have a complex balance of acids and sugars that give it its genuinely old-fashioned tomato flavor. The plants exhibit resistance to cracking and foliar diseases. The indeterminate big rainbow tomato plants grow 5-8 ft. tall, and staking is recommended. They take 90 days to reach maturity.
