Durene is an indeterminate salad tomato from Sakata’s local breeding programme. Durene is characterised by a very good fruit quality, uniform fruit size and a very good disease package. Durene has high resistance to Verticillium wilt race 1 (Vd: 1), Fusarium wilt races 1 and 2 (Fol: 1 – 2), Tomato mosaic (ToMV), Tomato spotted wilt (TSWV) and Leaf mold races 1 – 5 (Ff: 1 – 5) (ex Cf) and intermediate resistance to Tomato curly stunt (ToCSV) and Tomato yellow leaf curl (TYLCV). Durene has a very good shelf life.  The strong vigour of plants tends to make it less susceptible to common leaf diseases under circumstances normally conducive to disease development. Durene can be grown under protection and in the open field due to its good fruit set and size giving high pack out percentages.
