Recommended to us by many farmers we know, Gold Medal was an all-around stunning tomato in our very first grow out. Maude and Tom Powell of Wolf Gulch Farm who grew some seed for us had this to say about it: “We loved growing this tomato! The plants were abundant producers of very large, meaty, 1lb+ fruits. What really stands out is the color – a sunset orange with red marbling, amazing to look at when sliced. The flavor is also outstanding, somewhat fruity. Great for sandwiches, but we also dried and made sauce with them. It reminded us of Striped German, one of our all-time favorites, but was more productive.” First introduced in 1921 as Ruby Gold in John Lewis Child’s (credited with founding one of, if not the first seed catalog business in the United States) catalog it was later renamed Gold Medal by Ben Quisenberry in his 1976 catalog. Mr. Quisenberry operated Big Tomato Gardens and was passionate about saving heirloom tomato seeds from extinction. Indeterminate. This large tomato does benefit from the extra heat of being grown under cover in cooler areas.
