Nepal Certified Naturally Grown Seed

78 days, indeterminate — The regular leaf plants of 'Nepal' produce wonderfully flavored, globe to flattened-globe shaped, ten to twelve ounce, red colored fruit. It is quite productive and a good choice as a main crop, canning or processing tomato.

When he sent 'Nepal' seeds to us in 2004, our friend, author and tomato authority Craig LeHoullier told us, "It is still a favorite of mine." In his 2015 book entitled, "Epic Tomatoes: How To Select and Grow the Best Varieties of All Time," he wrote, "Though nothing special to look at, NEPAL is the tomato that converted me from hybrids to heirloom." He originally purchased the seed in 1986 from Johnny's Selected Seeds, who have carried it off and on since they first introduced it in the mid-1980s. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
Delicious, but susceptible to disease.
Delicious, and a good all-purpose tomato. However, mine seemed to be especially susceptible to fusarium wilt. All three plants completely dead within 14 weeks of transplant; did get a nice early yield though considering the short duration. Adjacent varieties (Cherokee Purple, Green Giant, Eva Purple Ball) showed very minor signs of fusarium, easily controlled. Nepal just didn't stand up to it. Might be great in other areas.
