Gary Ibsen’s Gold

About Gary Ibsen’s Gold

Tomato seeds for this tall, leafy variety were sent to Gary Ibsen in 1990 from a gardener in Boone County, WV who shared that he had been growing these, and a favorite red variety for 40 years. He was given the tomato seeds from his Uncle who had grown them in Tennessee. In 2006, after several years of growing them them in the TomatoFest seed trials under the name “No Name #4”, while eating some of this fruit just off the vine, his wife, Dagma Lacey, suggested it be given the name, “Gary Ibsen’s Gold.,” and share it with others. Potato leaf plant produces moderate amounts of very juicy, large, 14 oz. , brilliant orange-gold globes with tropical fruit flavors with enough acid balance to guarantee a burst of tomato delight.
