About Zhefen Short

Seeds sent to Gary Ibsen, of TomatoFest, in 2001 from a farmer in the Zhengjiang province of China as a family favorite. Gary grew this variety in the for 9 years and found it to be a wonderful tomato then released it to others. Determinate, regular leaf, 4′ plant produce an abundance (LOTS) of beautiful pink, slightly oval, 3-inch fruit with good juice, sweet/acid balance and great taste. A winner for a short season area or patio tomato. Good market tomato. All purpose tomato. Disease resistant.
