Is that b^og? Tangerine does not normally get that intense.


This reminds me that I need to make a cross of KBX X Jaune Flamme' to bring b^og into a large potato leaf background.

I am not sure, but I think it is likely Tangerine.

The color intensity suggests it is b^og i.e. beta carotene. Sungold and Jaune Flamme' both are b^og. Kelloggs Breakfast and KBX are both tangerine. Those fruit look a lot like Persimmon. I don't know the genetics of Persimmon.

Beautiful fruit indeed, what sort of size are we talking about with these. Love orange fruit, pity that they are not available Down Under

Whwoz, my first one was 370g, the second one looks to be slightly larger maybe over 450g, and the tomatoes higher up are slightly smaller, I'd estimate250-300g.


Fred: yours are much more orange than mine, I wonder if I ate mine too early and should've let it go a bit longer for the color? Had it this weekend, and it was delicious, my first large tomato for the season

Picked my second one, it's a monster at 610g Definitely a fused bloom. Sorry



Interesting that two halves tasted different.. one side had an almost allium/garlic flavor to it. I used a clean knife :p

Here's a couple of my first ripe Amalfi Orange, and a Raya Rey. So far all the Amalfi Orange fruits are very uniform and virtually blemish free, which is unique in my harsh environment. I haven't tasted yet. I'm going to use these to make an orange salsa!
