Tomato, 'Jaune Flamme'


We were introduced to this variety as a coveted secret ingredient to a fellow farmer’s “heirloom tomato mix” while living and farming in VT years ago. Beautiful, perfectly round, small 4-5 oz fruits are bright orange on the outside and often have a reddish blush in the flesh. Fruits hang in cherry tomato-like trusses on medium-sized very prolific plants with an open habit. The flavor is bright in acidity, and juicy. Our most reliable and productive non-cherry field tomato. Looking back over our sales, I have noticed, that this is among our least popular varieties the past few years which means we are not doing it justice in our descriptions. It was second only to Carbon in a taste test a few years ago and is one of only 2 or 3 tomatoes we grow every year, no matter what. We LOVE this variety both as market growers and home gardeners.

Growing Info

SOWING:

Sow 4-7 weeks before your last frost date.

Transplant out after danger of frost (50+F nighttime temps).

Note: Don't start too early or plants will be leggy and root-bound! Tomatoes do well in clay to loam soils. 

PLANTING DEPTH:

1/8-1/4"

SPACING:

18" spacing in rows 5' apart.

EMERGENCE:

10-14 days @ soil temp 70-85F

LIGHT:

Full sun

FERTILITY:

Medium-Heavy. Prefers well-drained, well-balanced fertile soil with a pH between 6.0-7.5. Note that excess Nitrogen will encourage foliage, not fruit! Low calcium and irregular watering will result in blossom end rot.

ADDITIONAL NOTES:

Row cover may be used for extra warmth and possible earlier fruit set.

Irregular watering can result in blossom end rot.

Plant deeply to encourage healthy root structure.

Indeterminate varieties may benefit from pruning suckers to encourage air flow, plant health, and energy towards plant top and fruit.

Trellis! We really like the Florida weave.
