Product Description:

70 days. One of the best storage tomatoes we've found, and worth keeping for its delicious flavor. When picked green the 2 ¼–2 ½ inch fruit will be golden and ripe within 1–1 ½ months, and then will store another 1 ½–3 months longer! Vigorous, indeterminate vines. Why buy store bought tomatoes in the winter when you can enjoy your own?

Golden Treasure Tomato

I've grown Territorial's Golden Treasure Tomatoes the last two years, and will be planting them again this year. The plants have been vigorous and productive, with sturdy stems. The last tomatoes of this variety were harvested green in mid October, and stored in trays in an unheated room where the temperature is usually in the mid-fifties. In spite of the cold they have ripened slowly, and I just bring them into a warmer room as needed. Very few have gone bad, and although they are a little on the hard side, the flavor is excellent. Fresh garden tomatoes in the middle of February is my idea of a successful tomato crop.

No more winter grocery store tomatoes

This is my second year growing Golden Treasure and it will be my regular practice going forward. I eat and can my other varieties all summer, but come late September here in the Willamette Valley of Oregon, I harvest all my yellow and green Golden Treasures. I spread them out on a towel in my garage and pick them out as they ripen slowly all winter. It's mid January now and I still have tons for fresh salads. I'll bring some in the house to warm up and more fully ripen if they're taking too long. They are a little firmer and more tart than summer tomatoes, but still better and far less expensive than buying them all winter. Highly recommend.


My daughter in law gave me these seeds. When they did not get ripe, I picked them in Sept. hoping they might ripen in the house. I am still eating these, it is now almost Feb. I have a small basket still to enjoy into the next month. When it seemed they were not ripening I cut one open just to see, It was beautiful on the inside and deliciously tart. This will be the only Tomato I buy in the future!

I love this tomato

This Tomato kept for us into February this year. It is a tart tomato when storing it which we love. I have grown this off and on for years and now I won't be without it. It is probably my favorite tomato because the flavor is so powerful compared to soggy store bought winter tomatoes. They do stay a bit hard for me but I don't mind at all. It is awesome to have on hand when you need a little zing for tacos or pizza. Try it. Don't expect super orange tomatoes when storing them. Mine stay pretty yellow but are really good tasting.

Days to maturity are calculated from date of transplant.

Determinate tomatoes: grow compactly, sprawling laterally, usually do not require staking, and fruit ripens over a short period of time
Indeterminate tomatoes: grow on long vines, generally require pruning to 1 or 2 leaders that need to be trellised
• Fertile, well-drained raised beds covered with plastic mulch promote early growth and better yields
• Tomatoes are high feeders and will benefit from regular fertilization with Age Old Bloom
• To prevent blossom end rot use a high calcium amendment
• Overwatering can cause fruit to crack

Direct Sowing
• Not recommended

• Sow seeds in trays 6-8 weeks before anticipated transplant date; up-pot into 3-4 inch pots when the first set of true leaves appears
• Strong light and cooler temperatures (60-70°F) prevent plants from getting leggy
• Fertilize with Age Old Grow every 10-14 days
• When transplanting work in compost, 1/2 cup of TSC's Complete fertilizer, and handful of bone meal
• Determinates can be spaced 18-24 inches apart, indeterminates 24-36 inches apart
• Tomatoes can be buried up to the top 2 sets of leaves
• Use Kozy-Coats or Victorian Bell Cloches to protect young plants

Insects & Diseases
Common insects: Flea beetles and tomato hornworms
Insect control: Pyrethrin or row cover for flea beetles, and Monterey B.t. for tomato hornworms
