Attractive round yellow/orange fruit to 75mm. Firm meaty flesh, excellent fresh or for slicing and salads. Some disease resistance. A New Zealand heirloom, the heir to the title 7th Earl of Edgecombe went to England from New Zealand and returned with the title and the tomato.
Originates from the Andes and cultivated in Central America. Suppresses couch grass, high in vitamin C, companion to parsley. Prefers open sunny positions. Sensitive to frosts. Water in furrows rather than overhead to reduce disease, declines if waterlogged. Does well on light to heavy soils with good drainage and high organic and phosphorus. Sow anytime in frost free areas, can sow indoors 5 weeks before transplanting in cooler areas or after last frost.
