Tomato Halms Gelbe (Hahms Gelbe)

I’ve called this Halms Gelbe, but there is a good chance it is actually Hahms Gelbe and I’ve just mis-read the label on the packet (since discarded so I can’t check).


One of the new 2018 cultivars and (in May) nothing to report on what the fruit look/taste like. However, the plant is stocky and growing well. Its a mini-dwarf plant (very short) so its being grown on the bench in the polytunnel along with the other Determinate varieties. More pictures will be added as it grows and crops.

Update August 2018

Despite its size (it only about 12 inches tall), this yellow cherry tomato is cropping quite well. Its flavour is virtually indistinguishable from other yellow cherry tomatoes, what I call “bright and flavoursome”. Its quite tart (but I like that in a cherry tomato).

2019 Update: I’ve decided to grow this again in 2019. I thought it did acceptably well and my plan is to fill the greenhouses with indeterminate varieties and to grow the determinates either outside (depending on the weather) or on the bench in the polytunnel. So that’s where this will go. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t up to much in 2019 so, although I grew Halm’s Gelbe it didn’t do as well as 2018. Nonetheless, in my view its a really good tomato and will (probably) keep its place in 2020.

2020: I didn’t (though why I don’t know) perhaps have a go in 2021. It’ll have to be outside so I’ll see if it needs protection.
