Bright Orange small/standard tomato on Indeterminate plants.
Jaune Flamme (or Flamme) is named for its bright colouration (orange flame). Grown for the first time in 2018 with seeds from a seed swap, we were interested to see how this grew.
It did well (once I'd sorted it out as I'd mixed it up with Orange Banana somehow). A bright orange/apricot coloured tomato (both skin and flesh) it ripened relatively early and cropped quite well.
Its got an excellent citrusy flavour which is said to improve with roasting (I don't have the patience to separate out different sorts of tomatoes and go to that level of examination). It seemed to resist splitting (even with the variable watering in 2018) and I would suggest that if you haven't grown this before you try it as it cooks well and yet is excellent in salads.
The web attributes this to Norbert Perreira of Helliner, France but (as always with the web) its hard to find a source for the attribution and they could all come from the same source particularly as there appears to be a slightly different spelling (Periera) of somebody who has something to do with tomato breeding in France.
