ESTY F1 HYBRID INDETERMINATE SALAD TOMATO

OUTSTANDING QUALITIES

  • RESISTANT TO TOMATO CURLY STUNT AND ROOT-KNOT
  • HIGH FRUIT QUALITY
  • UNIFORM GREEN SHOULDER
  • GOOD LEAF COVER AND VIGOUR

Esty is a new locally bred indeterminate salad tomato with high fruit quality and very good shelf life. Esty’s uniform fruit size and a very good disease package makes it a great all round tomato. Esty has high resistance to Verticillium wilt race 1 (Vd: 1), Fusarium wilt races 1 and 2 (Fol: 1 – 2), Tomato mosaic (ToMV) and Leaf mold races 1 – 5 (Ff: 1 – 5) (ex Cf) as well as intermediate resistance to Tomato curly stunt (ToCSV) and Tomato yellow leaf curl (TYLCV). The vigour of the variety tends to make it less susceptible to common leaf diseases and also makes the plants very efficient in the uptake of nutrients. Esty can be grown under protection and in the open field due to its bigger fruit size and good fruit set.
