MI FL J

Large vines, need caging or staking. First maturity about 70 days. Fruits are 4-8 oz. smooth red globes. They have a very good rich flavor and Nepal is a good steady producer throughout the summer (peaking at around 90-100 days) and well into the fall. The fruits are a bit on the soft side and some cracking does occur in wet weather. It has been observed by others as well as myself that what is offered for sale by commercial sources Johnny's Selected Seeds , Tomato Growers Supply is very ordinary in flavor, and may not be the same strain as that with which I’m familiar. I do not know which might be the authentic Nepal variety. The variety was reportedly obtained from the Himalayan country of the same name. We can only wonder how it got there from Central America!

History

  • This variety was reportedly obtained from Himalaya Mountains
  • Johnny's Selected Seeds has been offering Nepal off and on since as early as 1987. It is seed saved from Craig LeHoullier's initial grow out of the JSS seed that he sent to Jeff in 1990 or before. A few years later Craig returned to JSS to purchase some fresh seed, but it did not grow as large or as flavorful. Whether this was just the particular season or variation in their seed stock was not determined at the time.
