About Velvet Red

Velvet Red AKA Angora Super Sweet. Winner of the 2009 Tomato Tasting at SSE’s Heritage Farm. Seeds were sent to Carolyn Male of Latham, New York by Joe Bratka, NJ in 1996. Later Joe Bratka seems to have changed the name of this tomato to Angora Super Sweet. Although there is no guarantee that this is the same tomato, the main traits are the same (i.e., angora foliage, fruit size/shape). Carolyn Male also noted that the original Velvet Red did not have fuzzy fruits as Angora Super Sweet, so there is a possibility that these two strains evolved differently over time, or were different to start with.
Indeterminate, regular leaf plant with striking silvery gray, dusty miller-type foliage, produces heavy yields of 1″, red, cherry tomatoes, with excellent sweet flavors. Occasionally a non-silvery plant will appear.
