Mountain Rouge Hybrid Tomato VFNLb
73 days. Perhaps the best resistance to the dreaded Late Blight yet! This AAS Winner is a sister to blight-resistant but determinate ‘Mountain Merit’, but new ‘Mountain Rouge’ is indeterminate and more productive over a longer season. Fruits are a reddish-pink, beefsteak size that weigh 12 to 14-oz., with a flavor that’s the perfect balance of acid and sugar. ‘Mountain Rouge’ is softer, with the full-bodied sweet-acid balance that heirloom ‘Brandywine’ is revered for, while ‘Mountain Merit’ has a more acidic, less complex flavor. Try both and choose your favorite!
