The delicious, dark-orange flesh of this large beefsteak tomato has a great balance of sweetness and acidity. Juicy fruits mature mid-season, weigh a half to full pound, and measure 3-4.5"" wide. Tall, indeterminate plants grow 5-6' tall and bear fruit singly or in a cluster of 1-3. Betty Moore of Stow, Ohio, has stewarded this variety since 1983, when she received it from her mother, Oma Rachel Lively Miller, who was given the variety from a relative circa 1937 when she married. 75-80 days from transplant. Organic.

These are the best low acid tomatoes.

This is the best tomato I have ever grown. It tastes like candy. I eat them as fast as they ripen
A superb orange tomato
I planted Oma's Orange summer 2021 and it was quite a good producer! Very nice shape, little/no cracking, and a nice low acid mellow flavor. I will plant this again next year. I can pick when they are slightly orange and they are delicious or wait until a deeper orange and they are great too. A versatile tomato!
