About Plan 9 from Outer Space

‘Plan 9 from Outer Space’ is probably an accidental cross, found by Remy Rotella, USA (Sample Seed Shop), who grew it from seed he gets as a ‘Solar Flare’ tomato. Yellow and red striped outside with yellow and red marbled flesh, beefsteak type fruit, weighing about 7-12 oz. Delicious, good balanced sweet and acidic flavors with some fruity notes. Indeterminate, regular leaf plants produce fairly from the middle of the season.
Variety named after one of the worst fantasy movies ever, ‘Plan 9 from Outer Space’.
