About Purple Sunrise (Purpura Rits)

‘Purple Sunrise’ is said to be of Austria origin. The seeds of this variety were a gift from an Austrian tomato collector to Latvian colletor Valdis Pulins. Indeterminate, regular leaf plants are loaded with beautiful, large (7-9oz./200-250g), yellow beefsteak-type fruits with strong, antho splash on the shoulders. Sweet and fruity flavors make this tomato perfect for fresh eating. Mid- to late season, about 80-90 days from transplant.

    I precisely wanted to say thanks yet again. I am not sure the things I would have created in the absence of those tricks contributed by you regarding my topic. It previously was a real intimidating circumstance in my view, however , finding out your specialized way you solved it forced me to jump over delight. I'm happy for your service and pray you are aware of an amazing job you are putting in instructing the mediocre ones all through a site. I am certain you have never met all of us.
