"(5-6 oz.) Gumboe F1 is a hybrid, Roma/saladette type tomato. Truly an outstanding saladette, Gumboe F1 features great disease tolerance with large, dense fruit that is firm with thick flesh. Very productive over many picks. Uniform ripening and excellent brix round out this tomato’s impressive package. Suitable for greenhouse or open field production cycles. Tolerant to Tobacco Mosaic Virus, Verticillium, Fusarium Wilt Race 2, Root Knot Nematode and Cracking." New England Seed
