Little Red's Market - Rothschild

eric30March 28, 2009

This is south of Wausau off of old hwy 51. Last year I bought a 6 pack of tomato seedlings called "Rainbow Heirloom" (mixture of surprise heirlooms). Anyone have any idea what was in there? They didn't even know when I bought the plants. I saved seed from this big yellow slicer. The seedlings are growing great under my lights but I don't know what it is! Sure was tasty though, had like a hint of melon to it. Here are the seedlings.

Was it somewhat red inside and yellow/orangish outside? If so it's probably this.

Just a guy. It could possibly be this. They didn't look exactly like the photo but it is how you described. yellow orangish with red streaks inside! Did you get plants from them or do you have inside information or are you guessing?

I posted a photo of the tomato I am describing. It is the one out in front. It has the red patch on the blossom end like I have been reading in the descriptions of the 'Big Rainbow'. You can also pick out a few more of these in the picture. I want to call Red's to see if I can find out for sure.

Just guessing.

Tomato Fest has probably the largest selection of heirlooms around, all with pictures.

the link will take you to their bicolored tomatos. They also sell Big Rainbow. If it is commercially available, Tomato Fest would have it.
