Tomato, Red Lightning Hybrid

Irresistible flavor and brilliant electric coloring.

Burpee Exclusive

Customer Favorite!

Lovely to look at, exquisite to taste. Red Lightning loads up with brilliant red 2½ to 3" fruits covered with "hand-painted" yellow stripes. The flavor is irresistible—sweet, tangy and richly aromatic. Lends a jolt of delectable color to salads. The vigorous plants grow 5' tall, producing a continuous harvest of tomatoes right up till fall.
