An improved “Caro Red”, developed by E.C. Tigchelaar and M.L. Tomes at Purdue University and released in 1973. Regular leaf plant with prolific yields of 10-12 oz., round, deep orange-gold fruit that contains extremely high content of beta-carotene (Caro Rich has 10 times more than other tomatoes). A low acid tomato. And very good sweet fruity flavors. An excellent salad tomato.
