Belarus Orange Tomato Seed (76 days)
Sustainably Grown Tomato Seed
I believe the story or history of a seed like Belarus Orange Tomato is important to share. I got this seed a few years ago from Lisa Von Saunder. She collects endangered seeds from Amish Pennsylvania German families in the area and tries to preserve them. Lisa also gets seeds from her friends in Russia. Here is how she says Belarus Orange came about.
"I received a wonderful surprise package of heirloom seeds from Andrey B. from Belarus, a former part of the Soviet Union until 15 years ago. It is situated between Russia and Poland and is in growing Zone 4A." Andrey told Lisa "I want you to present these great varieties to American and other foreign gardeners "
Sweet incredibly rich flavor. Firm, thick, meaty, few seeds all packed in an amazing orange color. Very, very productive! Belarus has to be one of my favorite orange tomatoes! Perfect for slicing.
California Grown Heirloom Seed
Belarus Orange did extremely well here in the coastal range. It was the earliest orange to start producing and didn't stop until the first freeze. This was a favorite of the chef at the winery for the bright color and rich flavor.
Seed is in short supply.
