- Availability: Out Of Stock
PACKAGING: Sachet Zip lock 12 - 15 SEEDS
1. Original Name: Pascal de Picardie. Translated as 'Pascal from Picardy'. Also known as Crazy Horse Antho Paste.
2. History: Developed by tomato breeder Dean Slater (USA). Named after tomato collector Pascal Antigny from Picardy (a historical region in the north of France where Jules Verne’s house is located), who participated in the selection of this variety.
3. Plant Specifications: Mid-season. A good choice for outdoors and a greenhouse. Indeterminate, tall bush, growing up to 6.5 feet (200 cm) tall. Thin stem, regular leaf. Regular truss, 5-7 fruits per truss.
4. Training Instructions: It can be trained to two or three main stems, and pruning and staking are a must.
5. Shape and Weight: Elongated cylindrical fruits with distinct pointed tips. Weight: 3.5-5.3 oz. (100-150 g).
6. Color: Anthocyanin turning lilac-colored and later dark blue on the dark crimson background when exposed to the sun. An outstanding combination! Its color resembles that of Sgt. Peppers, with the latter being more heart-shaped and larger in size. The flesh is rich red in a cut. It is rather a work of beauty than a tomato!
7. Flavor Profile: Very delicious. Sweet and slightly tart but well-balanced with an intense full aroma. The flesh is buttery, juicy and soft.
8. Culinary Use: A universal variety. A good choice for salads, juices, paste, sauces and canning. However, it is recommended to eat these wonderful tomatoes outdoors picking them right from the bush and eating them with a slice of fresh bread and thin slices of bacon.
