Feurerwerk Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) A German heirloom aka “firework” producing large red fruit with orange and golden striping primarily on the undersides, resembling a display of fireworks. A very fruity, sweet tasting variety, excellent in salads and sandwiches. Indeterminate vines grow 3-4 feet and require staking as an abundance of fruit will weigh branches down by mid season.
