Orange King Certified Naturally Grown Seed
85 days, semi-determinate — Bred as a cross of 'New Hampshire Victor' and an orange sport of 'Scarlet Dawn' by Dr. A. F. Yeager, Department of Horticulture, University of New Hampshire. Released about 1943.

A beautiful, compact plant. Hundreds of flowers! Taste like a good red tomato - mild but tart not sweet like you might expect. The fruits are four to eleven ounces, oblate-shaped, and a bright orange color inside and out. The juice looks like orange juice.

Sent to us by David Pendergrass from USDA ARS accession number NSL 6884. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

Fairly tasty and attractive tomato
You'll notice the difference in the semi-determinate plant, as it finished about seven weeks earlier than the indeterminate plants alongside it. Started indoors in March, it yielded for a few weeks in June and July. My family found that the tartness made it less pleasant to eat than other yellow/orange varieties -- We preferred 'Jubilee' -- but it gave us several tasty fruit despite a rough watering and weather year.
