Velvet Red aka Angora Super Sweet

This is an extremely ornamental plant that would look good even growing in a flower garden. Leaves are a lovely fuzzy silvery gray similar to Dusty Miller. Red fruit are about 1” and have a nice sweet, fruity flavor. They may have a slight silvery fuzz on them which washes off but actually is barely noticeable when eaten fresh off the vine. Good production.

Story:

From Tatiana’s TOMATObase:

Seeds were sent to Carolyn Male of Latham, New York by Joe Bratka, NJ in 1996. Later Joe Bratka seem to have changed the name of this tomato to Angora Super Sweet. Although there is no guarantee that this is the same tomato, the main traits are the same (i.e., angora foliage, fruit size/shape). Carolyn Male also noted that the original Velvet Red did not have fuzzy fruits as Angora Super Sweet, so there is a possibility that these two strains evolved differently over time, or were different to start with.
