Tomato Roughwood Golden Plum

An Orange Plum tomato on Semi Determinate Plants


From the 2019 Seed Swap, another of those we didn’t have space for in 2020.

Its described as a Orange Plum tomato with two inch fruits with few seeds which is good for cooking and sauces.

It is said to be a cross between Yellow Brandywine and San Marzano, stabilised by William Woys Weaver whose story is best described here. His Roughwood Seed Collection seems to be large though where the various tomato cultivars are available from remains somewhat of a mystery.

As he’s been growing out the tomatoes for a long time but with no defined sate as to when this cultivar was stabilised (that I’ve been able to find) I’ve defined it as Open Pollinated.
