Indeterminate variety | Outstanding sweet flavor
Days to Maturity: 60
An organic variety, Esterina F1, a yellow cherry tomato, is grown as a fruit vegetable. The plant sets small “perfect” flowers, followed by small round fruits. The fruit has excellent crack resistance, bright color, and an outstanding sweet flavor. Eat fresh or cooked. Tomatoes are considered a superfood for their nutrient rich content, having a high (top 20) Aggregate Nutrient Density Index score (ANDI), or micronutrient-per-calorie density. Tomatoes are a good source of vitamin C and provide vitamin A and potassium. They also contain carotenoid lycopene and beta-carotene as well as phenolic acids and flavonoids.
Typically grown as an annual, Esterina F1 Organic Cherry Tomato, an herbaceous tender perennial, is a member of the nightshade family (Solanaceae), which contains plants that typically grow in temperate to tropical regions. A vigorous, multi-cluster, indeterminate variety, often called a “vining” tomato, Esterina requires staking or caging for support. Blossoms and fruit continue to develop as the vine grows, so, it bears an impressive amount fruit over the course of a season.
Esterina F1 Organic Cherry Tomato grows best in full sun and moist, humusy, deep, fertile loams. It is resistant to fusarium wilt 1-2, verticillium wilt, tomato yellow leaf curl virus, and tobacco mosaic virus. Self-pollinating, it will bear fruit without any pollen from other varieties.
A warm-season vegetable, sensitive to cold temperatures and frost, tomato seed should be direct sown into warm spring soil after all threat of frost has passed. Seeds can also be started indoors about 8 weeks before transplanting to the garden. Flowers begin to set fruit with night temperatures between 55 and 75??F. Protect plants with row covers if temperatures are expected to dip below 50??F. Mulching helps to moderate soil temperature and to maintain soil moisture.
