Matina is a great early fruiting variety – even with cool summer nights. Expect mature fruit in as few as 58 days. Great for both warmer climates and for short growing seasons. This is a medium sized (2 – 4 oz.) tomato that is a heavy producer throughout the growing season. The taste is similar to a beefsteak, sweet with a bit of tartness.
This tomato is great off the vine in salads, cooked for sauces, and stands up well to canning and stewing.
