Rebel Starfighter Prime is an indeterminate, regular wispy leaf tomato. Quoted from a breeder, Russ Crowe: “The first segregate from my cross of Xanadu Picasso x RHK GWR Heart will be released this fall. From here forward the “Prime” segregate a few people have been testing for me will be known as Rebel Starfighter – Prime.” The fruits should be heart-shaped with deep red/maroon flesh. It should have Antho Shoulders with Antho and various other colors stripes from stem to blossom end. The flavor should be deep and rich with long-lasting “umami”. Truly one of those once-in-a-lifetime crosses.
Red-purple epidermis with almost black shoulders, the whole underlined by radial lines from the peduncle to the apical end.
Dense, fleshy red-brown flesh. Deep and rich flavor long on the palate.
Plant filiform, narrow, with small stems, regular foliage, indeterminate growth.
Generous and regular production from mid-season until frost.
Good heat tolerance.
