Tomato, Oregon Spring

  • $4.00


Solanum lycopersicum

Early slicer that can produce in cooler temps and gets moving before it gets too hot.

This variety, developed by OSU for cooler climates, produces lots of 3-4" diameter fruits on compact plants that are good for containers. In hotter climates, the early flower set means fruits can get pollinated before high temps hit and blossoms drop. Remarkably good flavor.

Tomatoes are native to northwestern South America and by at least 500 BC they had been domesticated and were being cultivated as far north as modern-day Mexico, enjoyed by Aztec and other civilizations. They spread to Europe and the Caribbean through the Spanish colonizers, where they became staple parts of the food culture in many European countries as well. 

Determinate. Open-pollinated.
