Orange Peach Tomato
75 days to maturity. This is a true garden oddity; the fruit is perfectly peachy in color, with even a lightly fuzzy skin to match! A delicious reminder of the whimsy and fun of heirloom gardening, this imitation peach is nutritious and has splendid sweet flavor! The original peach tomato is an old French variety called Yellow Peach. It was used to make a marmalade that was a convincing substitute for the real thing! The Orange Peach, which we find even more peach-y was a chance cross found growing in the tomato patch of Pennsylvania farmer and heirloom expert James Weaver. We are sure glad that he saved and shared this variety. Its fantastic flavor and gorgeous looks make it a favorite here at Baker Creek! The fruit ranges in size from golf ball to tennis ball, with peach color, and fuzzy skin!
