This beautiful yellow/orange tomato comes to us from the breeder, one of our garden mentors, Juan Dean. Juan is a master gardener here in the Asheville, NC area who selected and improved this variety in the early 1980s from seed stock that he acquired in Guatemala.
The Mountain Sun tomato is a big beefsteak variety with exceptionally low acid and beautiful yellow flesh that becomes more of an orange shade as the fruits mature. The flavor is rich and great for many applications from fresh eating to sauces and canning. The fruits generally have few seeds and they average about 1-1.5 lbs.
Origin: The parent seed of Mountain Sun Tomato was given to us by our friend Juan Dean who bred the variety from seed stock he acquired in Guatemala in the 1970s.
(Approximately 20 seeds per packet)
