Damascus Steel x Mikado Orange
 
Now at F2 -

Two great parents. Damascus Steel is not the most amazing taster, but it is very very productive and stunningly beautiful as well, with excellent shelf-stability after picking. Mikado Orange on the other hand, is a fantastic tasting orange tomato with big, sun-sucking potato leaves.
