Renaissance Dragon Tomato


Renaissance Dragon Tomato

I was gifted what was supposed to be Purple Dragon tomato seeds in 2015 and grew 1 plant that year and more out in 2016.  They produce some unique colored tomatoes with darkened shoulders and streaks.  I also gave a few seeds to a friend to grow out.  As it turns out, both of our grow-outs were identical, but both were different from the images we saw of the original stock.  When I grew them out from saved seed, the result was the same.  So our grow-outs were actually “off” types.  Nonetheless, they were delicious and extremely beautiful.  Because of the consistency from our three separate grow-outs,
I suspect that this version may be stable or close to it.  But  there may still be some variation  in fruit characteristics.  At a friend’s prompting, I have decided to call this beautiful fruit,  Renaissance Dragon Tomato.

Renaissance Dragon Tomato Vines

Renaissance Dragon tomato vines are skinny and display a lot of purple coloration.  My vines grew to about 4-5 feet tall.  Plants produce a good amount of golf ball sized tomatoes that turn a dark purple where ever they are exposed to the sun. This is consistent with one quality demonstrated by tomatoes with the antho gene.  Although Renaissance Dragon tomatoes are not large, plants need to be staked early because they are so skinny and also because of the amount of fruits they produce.  Fruits begin to ripen about 75 days after transplant.  Vines are indeterminate.

Renaissance Dragon Tomato Taste

Renaissance Dragon tomato is a bit tangy and fruity with a lot of good juice.  It is an excellent fresh eating tomato that also has just the right amount of sweetness.  Overall, this tomato has some very desirable  traits and is definitely worth growing again.  This is a great tomato for salsa, drying, fresh eating and garnishing.  If you are daring, this will be a great tomato for your garden.  Give it a shot! Seeds are freshly packed just for you! Happy Gardening…
