Created by Lee Goodwin, J&L Gardens. It is a cross of Big Rainbow, Cherokee Purple and Bosque Blue. Seeds sent to Gary Ibsen of TomatoFest in 2015. Compact indeterminate, Regular leaf plant produces good crops of 10-14 oz., big-shouldered, orange tomato with deep blue around the stem and faint yellow stripes. Lee Goodwin named this variety because the colors looked like the setting sun through thunder clouds, fruit ripening from gold to red-orange. The flavors are well-balanced and bold.
