Name means “Yellow Flame” in French--apropos for these scrumptious fruits who ripen from pale yellow to apricot orange and hold their gorgeous color even when roasted or dried.

Our co-op tomato expert Kristi Appelhans offers this description: Salad size (3-4 oz) lovely orange tomato; very early even in Eastern Idaho and very prolific. Bears fruit on long racemes, similar to cherry tomatoes but a much larger fruit. It's indeterminate so needs some support. Will bear right up until frost. Flavor is excellent. Storage is good but they usually are gobbled up before their limits are tested! 

Tomatoes are native to northwestern South America and by at least 500 BC they had been domesticated and were being cultivated as far north as modern-day Mexico, enjoyed by Aztec and other civilizations. They spread to Europe and the Caribbean through the Spanish colonizers, where they became staple parts of the food culture in many European countries as well, including France. Norbert Perreira of Helliner, France is credited with introducing Jaune Flamme into the world, after which their circuitous journey brought them back to the Western hemisphere again, to find a beloved place in Intermountain West gardens!
