Jubilee Tomato - A Celebration on the Vine
A golden orange tomato with 6-7 oz. fruits 2.5 - 3.5" in diameter, meaty thick walls, solid, with few seeds. Mild but good tomato flavor, considered a rich flavor for an orange tomato with heavy yields.
Best for home garden and local market, not for the far Northern climates. Most excellent for fresh use, slicing, juice, salads and canning or cooking.
A medium-sized indeterminate plant with narrow foliage and fair cover, one of the few orange tomatoes that can compare in quality, flavor and production with the reds.
Tomatoes were grown as a crop in Mexico and Peru in pre-Columbian times, but the early history of domestication is not well known (most likely in Mexico). In Europe, tomatoes were grown as ornamentals (thought to be poisonous) and became popular as a food only in the 18th century.
Raw or cooked the tomato is one of the most widely used and versatile foods from your garden. Use fresh in salads, sandwiches, and salsas. Cooked in sauces and stews. Can be stuffed, dried, puree, paste or powdered. The uses are endless!
Tomatoes suffer more transplant shock than other vegetables, but you can minimize this by hardening them off for a week or two first. This means setting them outdoors in their pots in a protected place so that they get some warm sun, a little gentle wind, and even some cool (not freezing) nights. This will help them adjust to some of the stresses of real life before having their roots transplanted into the ground.
