History: The Amana Orange Tomato is named after the Amana Colonies in Iowa, where it was first grown. Its origins trace back to the heritage of heirloom tomatoes, cherished for their unique flavors and colors. This variety stands out for its large, vibrant orange fruits, a rarity in the tomato world. The Amana Orange Tomato is a testament to the rich diversity found in heirloom tomato varieties and has become a favorite among gardeners and chefs for its exceptional flavor and striking appearance.

Culinary Uses: Amana Orange Tomatoes are particularly renowned for their sweet, yet tangy flavor that is less acidic than many red tomatoes. Their large size and meaty texture make them perfect for slicing into sandwiches or using as the star ingredient in a salad. Their bright orange color also adds a visually appealing aspect to dishes. Whether eaten fresh or used in cooking, the Amana Orange Tomato is a culinary delight, offering a unique twist on traditional tomato recipes.

Growth Habit & Planting Instructions: As an indeterminate variety, Amana Orange Tomatoes will continue to produce fruit throughout the growing season. They thrive in full sun and require well-drained soil to grow optimally. Start seeds indoors about 6-8 weeks before the last frost date, then transplant outdoors when the weather has warmed. Space plants about 24-36 inches apart to allow for growth. Provide support through staking or caging, as the plants can grow quite large and will need support for their hefty fruits. Regular watering and occasional feeding will encourage a healthy, bountiful harvest of these unique and flavorful tomatoes.
