Wisconsin 55 Gold

I have always been fond of WI 55 (as my customers know as I’m always suggesting it as a good one!) and now I’m really loving this sport of it. It has nice, big golden/orange fruit in the 6-12 oz size with some earlier ones much larger. Nice and firm and easy to slice. Flavor is just great - not too sweet or acidic. Picture perfect blemish free fruit makes it a wonderful tomato.


From Tatiana’s TOMATObase:

  • A gold fruited sport of Wisconsin 55, found in 1953-54 and maintained for a half a century by Dr. Raabe, a professor emeritus at UC Berkeley. Surprisingly for Dr. Raabe, one of his students and SSE member, Alison Stewart (CA ST A), expressed an interest in the variety and asked for seeds. Alison grew it out and shared the seed with several GardenWeb members in the early-mid 2000s.
  • Introduced in SSE 2007 Yearbook by Martin Longseth (WI LO M), Alison Stewart (CA ST A), and Bill Jeffers (IN JE B).
