About Valentine F1 Hybrid

‘Valentine F1’ Hybrid is a delicious high-lycopene grape tomato with massive early yields, deep-red color, and unusually rich flavor. Developed in collaboration with Dr. Majid Foolad of Penn State University, Valentine marries the best of wild-type tomato genetics with flavorful high-performing strains. This vivid red, high-yielding, and early blight-resistant tomato is the first commercial variety developed with Penn State’s patented high-lycopene breeding lines. Excellent color contrast when mixed with ‘Nova’ or ‘Golden Sweet’, ‘Valentine F1’ adds diversity to a small tomato mix. Avg. fruit weight 12–14g. Long shelf life. AAS winner. U.S. Patent #8,524,992. Intermediate resistance to Alternaria (early) blight. Indeterminate. For best flavor, harvest when fruits are deep red.
