TOMATO ‘Earl of Edgecombe’

Botanical Name: Lycopersicon esculentum

NZ heirloom with a beautiful flavor that is rich, sweet, and tart all at once. The texture is smooth and meaty. The fruit is an orange globe to 75mm, held in clusters of 2 or more. It is resistant to cracking and blossom end rot. Yellow tomatoes can be even better for you than red tomatoes as they contain a more easily assimilated form of lycopene.

Sow When:

  • Temperate: Early spring – inside with extra heat; outside after frost danger has passed, March – October in frost-free areas
