Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Farallones Orange Tomato Seed
Farallones Orange Tomato Seeds (82 days)
Sustainably Grown Approx. 25 heirloom seeds
Indeterminate vines with regular leaves.
Farallones Orange Tomato came from the Occidental Arts and Ecology Center (OAEC) about 30 minutes away from here. It was named after the famed seal island just off the coast from San Francisco. Actually, the OAEC took over the 76 acres that used to be the Farallones institute.
Here is what they say... "Unique orange beefsteak, great flavor. Collected from a compost pile here in 1983."
California Grown Heirloom Seed Born here and grows well here. Just like any beefsteak it produces here around late September. Medium harvest of 12-14 oz beefsteak type slicers.
