Amana Orange Tomato
75-80 days. Amana Orange tomato is a large beefsteak that turns bright orange when fully ripened. Discovered by Gary Staley of Florida, this fine tomato could take care of all of your tomato issues. It’s meaty, sweet, rich and very balanced. A great sandwich tomato, this will also be good in nice yellow sauce, cooking, salsas and just eating off the vine. Vines are bushy and tall and would need good staking. Expect lots or nice beefsteaks from this heavy producer. Good disease resistance! Fruits can weigh as much as 1.5 pounds but the average for us is between 14 and 18 ounces! Fabulous market variety! Also see Barnes Mountain Orange. Amana Orange On YouTube!
My family’s favorite tomato. Sweet, tropical and delicious.
Not as glamorous, but it’s an impressive and reliable performer. Stake well, as these can get really big and heavy…up to slice-of-bread size. They love the sunshine and keep producing large sizes up until frost. Excellent for farm markets, as the size and cosmetic perfection is an eye catcher. They make pretty salsa and the flavor is well balanced.
