About Primrose Gage

Seeds collected in 1931 by Dobbie and Company. (Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) in the village of a semi-nomadic tribe in the jungle of southern India between 5,000 and 8,000 feet altitude. USDA Narrative: “Foliage is more glaucous green than that of the ordinary tomato. The primrose-yellow fruit, about the size of a golf ball, has a bloom like that of a grape. It has a sharp sweet flavor which is distinct from that of all other tomatoes.” First offered in the Seed Savers 2005 Yearbook by Norbert R. Pikovsky, Johnstown, PA, who got his Primrose Gage seeds from PI Station, India. Indeterminate, regular leaf, (unusual looking foliage – so much so that you can easily tell the plants apart from other tomato plants.) plant produces 1-2 oz., round, pale-yellow tomatoes with fuzzy velvety skin. When immature, they look a lot like a gooseberry in appearance due to the pale striping, which disappears as fruits ripen. Fruit offers deliciously delicate sweet flavors.
