Peron Tomato
PERON (Sprayless)
Medium-sized semi-determinate bushy vines are very resistant to fungus diseases which commonly plague tomatoes. (Called "Sprayless" because the vigorous vines required very little chemical applications). A very heavy yielder of extraordinary quality fruits. Flesh is very solid and meaty, without a core. Ripens to a beautiful deep red color over the entire fruit without green or yellow shoulders. Velvety-smooth skin is very crack resistant. Flavor is mild, and quite exceptional. Fruits keep exceedingly long after ripening.
