This variety works for:

Store your tomatoes at room temperature. The flavor and texture of tomatoes suffer when the fruit is chilled.
Heirloom tomatoes are bred for their flavor and simple preparation best allows that intense flavor to shine through. Tomatoes can be sliced and drizzled with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and salt and pepper or layer slices with basil and mozzarella for a Caprese salad.
Roasted tomatoes have a richer, concentrated flavor.
There are hundreds of salsa recipes to try and most are dramatically improved with the use of heirloom tomatoes. Tomatoes are also the main ingredient in Gazpacho, a cold soup that is perfect for summer.

- Plant Outdoors: 24-36” Apart
- Support: Cage, stake, or trellis

The Perfect Tomato
by Teresa Williams
My all-time favorite tomato. I’ve been growing these for years, produce every year. No cracking, disease resistant. Excellent rich tomato flavor, slightly sweet taste, perfect for slicing & sandwiches, salads, pasta, and absolute perfect pairing with fresh mozzarella, basil, olive oil, and sea salt.
My favorite of all my tomatoes

I like to plant tomatoes of all sizes and colors. This tomato is my very favorite. Wonderful, complex flavor. Shape is usually very uniform, midsized, color is a lovely orange.
A Wonderful Salad Tomato
by Gardener Bebe
Jaune Flamme has been one of my six to eight plants for many years. These are smaller in size, very juicy, and packed with flavor. Terrific for salads. Extremely productive throughout our midwestern season.
Prolific, Adaptable, Dependable, & Delicious
I've grown Jaune Flamme in three or four different hardiness zones--in hot, dry seasons and cold, wet ones, and they always produce well with minimal cracking or disease issues. Flavor is wonderful--slightly fruity and tropical, and the intense orange color is a lovely addition to a multi-colored tomato plate. This is a great tomato!
A favorite for years
One of my favorite tomatoes, always has a spot in my garden in Downeast Maine. In my experience, they are prolific, not prone to disease, beautiful in color, and have a well-balanced sweet-tart flavor. I also roast them in halves and freeze for enjoying through the winter.
