Starburst Nebula Tomato


Starburst Nebula Tomato

Starburst Nebula Tomato is another one that came to us in a very strange way. In 2011 I purchased some tomato seeds from Europe. When I finally grew them out in 2012, 5 plants produced all yellow fruits but one produced Starburst. In 2013 I grew the rest of my seeds out and all of them produced yellow fruits like they were supposed to.  So out of 10 seeds only one produced striped fruits. In 2014 and 2015 I grew out seeds from my saved stash and they all produced the same fruits after two years of grow out and about 10 plants. So they seem very stable. We have named this variety Starburst  Nebula.

Starburst Nebula Tomato Vines

Starburst Nebula vines are grow to about 5 feet but most seemed shorter in out gardens. They produce a very nice crop of canary yellow fruits with tender and evenly spaced, pinkish vertical  streaks. Fruits average about 8-4, with most coming in about 10 ounces. Vines are potato leaves and indeterminate. Early staking will greatly benefit Starburst Nebula  because vines produce quite a few tomatoes and many are very low to the ground.

Starburst Nebula Tomato Taste

Starburst Nebula tomatoes are mild, sweet and balanced. They are also very juicy. This is a perfect tomato for those who like tomatoes with less acidity but balanced tomato taste.  It also makes a really nice tomato sammich!  I made several and they were good! It is a mid-season tomato, beginning to ripen about 75-80 days after transplant.  It performed equally well in extremely wet and consistently hot conditions.  It does need early staking. Nebula is exclusively sold at renaissance Farms in 2016-2017.
