Nepal was a very pleasant surprise for us producing the earliest and heaviest sets we’ve seen for a tomato of its class and quality. Nearly beefsteak sized 1/2lb fruits hung in abundance and delivered the seasons first glimpse of that ripe complexity of flavor we celebrate during the main-season tomato time. Hailing from the Northern Indian Himalayas, Nepal is a fantastic early-midseason slicer, with sturdy, strong vines, crack-resistant fruit, and heavy set for its size. Also very good for ripening off the vine come fall.
