(Solanum lycopersicum) Introduced as Ruby Gold by John Lewis Childs of
Floral Park, New York, in his 1921 catalog. Ben
Quisenberry renamed it Gold Medal and listed it
in his 1976 catalog: “The sweetest tomato you ever
tasted. The yellow with streaks of red makes them
very attractive and a gourmet’s joy when sliced.” Our
finest bi-colored tomato—orange-yellow splashed
with tomato pink. Winner of the 2008 SSE Tomato
Tasting. Indeterminate, 75-90 days from transplant.
6 weeks before last frost
Cage, stake or trellis
Green Thumb Tip Sow seeds indoors ¼" deep. Tomatoes are sensitive
to freezing temperatures, so wait to transplant
outdoors until the soil is warm. Plant in full sun. ± 13,700 seeds/oz
