Orange Sunshine Hybrid Tomato

Adds Color to Salads and Salsas

One of the tastiest orange cherry-types we've found! The ½ oz., firm, orange fruits are bursting with flavor and sweetness. They'll add a dash of color and flavor to salads, salsas, pizzas and sautés—and they're unbeatable for snacking right off the plant. The high-yielding indeterminate Orange Sunshine Hybrid Tomato plants grow best in full sun. Start tomato seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before transplanting outdoors. If the weather and soil are warm, tomato seeds can be sown directly into the garden. Plant seedlings outdoors after any chance of spring frost has passed. Indeterminate. Approx. 15 seeds per pkt. 58 DAYS.
