Default Damascus Steel x Mikado Orange

Now at F2 -

Two great parents. Damascus Steel is not the most amazing taster, but it is very very productive and stunningly beautiful as well, with excellent shelf-stability after picking. Mikado Orange on the other hand, is a fantastic tasting orange tomato with big, sun-sucking potato leaves.




FY 3-6. Going forward on looks alone. Taste is a 7/10



L 5-3



FY 3-3
