Tomato Aranyalma (Golden Apple)

A medium/large Yellow Cherry tomato on Regular Leafed Indeterminate plants.

Description

We grew this for the first time in 2016 from seeds acquired at a local seed swap. Looking for descriptions on the internet was made more complicated by the fact that "Aranyalma" is Hungarian for "Golden Apple" which is a reasonable description of the fruit.

Like many yellow cherry varieties, the taste can be described as "mild". Their flavour doesn’t have the smokey undertones of black tomatoes, nor do they have the thick flesh of many red cherry tomatoes, but they are juicy and add to salads in the summer, but they (usually) do not cook well and when cooked can make insipid looking sauces.

It dates back to the 1950’s. They are very similar to our "home bred" Oleron Yellow.
