(Solanum lycopersicon) (80 days) Deep golden-orange color testifies to the rich beta-carotene content... this tomato will deliver you five-to-ten times more beta-carotene than most tomatoes! Compact, semi-determinant plants are perfect for space challenged gardeners; it won't continue to vine all over and take over your garden. This tomato will gift you back with a prodigious harvest of 3-1/2" round fruits with smooth, crack-resistant, blemish-free skin. Low in acid for a rich, sweet tomato flavor you will savor! [Note: Caro Rich is deep orange in color during the heat of the summer, and more yellow-orange in the fall as the days get cooler. Hence, the two-tone pictures! The second is taken right before freeze up!]
