- Sweet Tangerine (F2, F3, F4, F5)
Sweet Tangerine (F2, F3, F4, F5)
Small to medium (0.444 lb. largest weighed), globe-shaped, orange fruits have very good, rather sweet flavor. This is the variety for which research demonstrated that lycopene from orange tomatoes is more bioavailable than that from red tomatoes. Regular leaf, determinate. Derived from a hybrid, de-hybridization is in progress, seeds not saved from red-fruited offspring. Looks reasonably stable at this point: F2, F3, F4 and F5 seeds are available - let me know if you have a preference.
