Wisconsin Gold 55 tomato
WISCONSIN GOLD 55

4 - 8 ounce, round, sometimes slightly elongated dark orange fruits with firm flesh yet are also juicy. These have proven to be cold tolerant with good disease resistance. And excellent choice for folks that grow for home processing.

HISTORY: An orange sport of Wisconsin 55, preserved for over 50 years by one man. This splendid cultivar represents some of the last focused open-pollinated tomato breeding done at the University of Wisconsin in the early 1950's by J.C. Walker, who was actually a plant pathologist.
