Flame is an old heirloom tomato dating back to the 1880s.
It is said to have come from the hills of West Virginia.
The name "Flame" is very fitting as these red and orange streaked tomatoes look as if they are on fire.
Compact plants yielding 1-2# fruits.
Very meaty, sweet and lots of old time tomato flavour.
Great fresh in salads, sandwiches and even makes a good sauce.
Low acid flavor. Very sweet and juicy.
