The first golden yellow sauce tomato. Make a gorgeous golden sauce from the first yellow paste tomato bred. Prepare huge batches of yellow marinara from just a few plants. Besides the unique color, the taste is unusually mild and sweet. The compact plants yield enormous crops of 4-5 oz. fruits over an extremely long season. Indeterminate. 68 days.

I found the plants to be very prolific in a year when a lot of my heirloom plants were not so prolific. The fruits are a nice small size and make a very good sauce - I mixed with other yellows and oranges. I tasted them also prior to making the sauce and I found them to be better tasting than many plum style tomatoes, and surprisingly zesty for a yellow tomato. I will grow again. Mine were a bit longer than 68 days, but close.
