Oaxacan Jewel

About Oaxacan Jewel

Oaxacan Jewel AKA Joya de Oaxaca. A pre-Columbian Mexican heirloom tomato. Indeterminate, regular leaf plant that produces beautiful 1-2 pound, yellow beefsteak tomato with red streaks throughout the fruit with brilliant red marbling inside the flesh. Wonderfully rich, sweet, fruity flavors with a well-balanced acidic finish. A respected tomato to grow for the marketplace.
