Isbell's Golden Colossal Certified Naturally Grown Seed

85 days, indeterminate — In its time, 'Golden Colossal' was classified as a giant tomato variety, but by modern standards, we would consider its fruits to be medium to large (eight to twenty ounces each). They are oblate-shaped, bright yellow in color with some blossom-end blushing, and are mild and sweet in flavor.

Originally introduced in the 1915, S. M. Isbell & Co. seed catalog as the "Yellow Colossal" tomato, by 1916 it had been renamed, 'Golden Colossal'. Our original seed sample was USDA ARS accession number NSL 27354. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
Colossal is an understatement
Most of the fruit we picked were well over a pound each. Great sweet tomato flavor. Bigger than a beefsteak tomato so much so that you can make a tomato sandwich with a thick slice. No need for lettuce or bacon. It was that good. Color was inviting yellow with lots of reddish blushing on the ones we grew. We also dehydrated them, canned them as sauce for use on pizza. Fruit was sweet but had just the right amount of acid.
