Ara tomato
‘Ara’ is a semi-indeterminate F1 hybrid table-type tomato variety. It is very vigorous and highly prolific. It flowers 30-33 days from transplanting. ‘Ara’ has a small to medium (30-60 gm/fruit) high round fruit with smooth and tender skin, moderately firm, and red orange when ripe. It yields 20-30 tons/ha during the wet season and 40-60 tons/ha during the dry season. Its fruit quality is highly acceptable and yield performance is excellent which is comparable and even higher than other commercial F1 hybrid varieties and traditional farmers’ varieties. This variety is a heat tolerant all-season tomato which can be grown in low elevation as well as in the mid-elevation areas. It can be grown during the hot humid off-season months in a wide range of agro-climatic conditions.
