About Orion’s Belt

‘Orion’s Belt’ was selected and named by Blane Horton from a Cherokee Tiger cross made by Bill Jeffers. Beautiful, green, and metallic stripes on dark purple, plum-shaped fruit. Weight about 50-70g. Determinant dwarf-type plants with regular rugose leaf foliage, chartreuse-colored. Good tomato flavor, nice tart bite with some sweet notes. Very compact plants, perfect for pots on patio, terrace, or for small gardens.
