'Yellow Ruffled' is a really attractive, deeply pleated open-pollinated heirloom variety with a nice sweet, slightly mild flavour. Cut open the 2-3" sized fruit, scoop out the flesh, and stuff with a fresh salad, or bake in the oven with a grain (i.e. rice, quinoa, millet), veggies, and/or minced meat. I've found this to be a very prolific and reliable producer through all types of seasons, but it really comes into its own in a hot summer.
This plant will grow into quite a large vine. I recommend growing in the ground or a raised bed and trellising to keep the plant up off of the soil.
Special Notes: Indeterminate. Yellow, pleated fruit. Hollow cavity with juicy flesh inside. Open-pollinated. Mid-season. 80 days. Grows into a monster plant with lots of heavy fruit so be sure to stake well.
No less than 20 seed per packet.
Seed Starting and Growing: Start seed indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost. Transplant outdoors after danger of frost has passed.
About You Grow Girl Seeds:
All of the seeds that I sell were lovingly homegrown and harvested by me, small scale, in my urban garden using organic methods only -- no chemicals or pesticides whatsoever. Tomato varieties are isolated to stay true using the flower bagging method and I test for germination quality. I take special care in choosing varieties that I find unusual, interesting and fabulous, and/or especially suitable for growing in small space gardens.
