A Tasty Treat: Tomato ‘Chef’s Choice Orange’

Derived from the popular heirloom ‘Amana Orange’, this new 2014 All-America Selections winning tomato is ready to eat sooner. Instead of taking until late in the season, this variety is ready to harvest 75 days after transplanting. It tastes great and the color remains true—a plus in soups, stews and sauces where the visual appeal of a dish is quite important.
