Given to SSE by the late Dr. John Wyche, one of SSE’s earliest members. Dr. Wyche’s friend used to own Carson & Barnes Circus which overwintered in Hugo, OK. He fertilized his terraced mountaintop gardens with the elephant manure and scattered lion and tiger waste to keep out deer and rabbits. Heavy yields of one pound golden-yellow tomatoes. Meaty flesh and rich flavor. Indeterminate, 75-85 days from transplant.

Ratings & Reviews
Great yellow that grown good in northern IL.
Great tasting yellow. Breaks down easily so not so good for cooking sauce, but fantastic sliced and placed on a sandwich. For everyone looking for a full tomatoe flavour with less acidity
Big on Size, Big on Flavor
I've grown yellow tomatoes before that are pretty tasteless. These yellows were BIG on flavor and size! Didn't have any exotic manure - just cow, but they didn't seem to mind.
