Maturity: 60 days from transplant
Developed by the University of Idaho for northern growers in the 1950's, Ida Gold is often the first to ripen of all the early tomatoes. Two-bite sized round golden fruit reach 1-2.5" on determinate 3' plants. Best for fresh slicing, Ida Gold has low-acidity and a rich sweet and tangy flavor but will hold well in sauces and preserves.
From the Farmers
We didn't have super strong opinion about Ida Gold until the dreary, wet, cold summer of 2020. She was fast, first, bountiful, and tasty. This lady proved herself to be the true champion of Alaskan gardener dreams when all our other tomatoes struggled. Not super sweet but with a bright tangy flavor, we have been using her in a lot of marinara sauces this winter. Third generation seed stock from our farm.
