Golden Jubilee Yellow Tomato

5 out of 5 stars Mar 25, 2020
The box that the seeds came in was the best of all the seed shipments that I have received over the last ten years. The golden jubilee seed package had a separate vacuum packed packet inside the paper packet. 30 seeds were listed and got 30 seeds. A very detailed description of the plant dimensions and variety history with weight and size of the tomato. I planted 13 seeds and 11 germinated on a heat mat with a grow light. So far everything is great. I'll definitely be buying Botanical Interests seeds next year because of the quality and attention they pay to delivering seeds. Outstanding!

Golden Jubilee

5 out of 5 stars Aug 30, 2022
This is the second year I have grown Golden Jubilee. They germinated well in March and we're planted outside in May. This year, they are just huge and so prolific. I'm getting 1/3 to 1/2 lb tomatoes every day and they are beautiful and delicious . They slice easily and are so attractive on a plate

Lovely, large tomatoes with potential for blossom end rot in the PNW

4 out of 5 stars Dec 25, 2022
I really enjoyed these tomatoes when they matured without any blossom end rot. They were just a little smaller than the palm of my hand, and made for a lovely presentation when pared with basil, red tomato, and mozzarella slices for a summer picnic. Many of the tomatoes were firm, juicy, and mild, making for delicious slices with basil or even just dusted with some salt. I am in zone 8b in the Pacific Northwest, only fertilize with compost and a nitrogen feed, and only water when I see things start to wilt. In 2022 maybe 25% of these tomatoes seemed to suffer from blossom end rot so I had to throw those ones out. This problem could potentially be solved with different fertilizer or watering methods, or a different climate, so I can't really fault the seed variety. There are other large-sized tomato varieties that I have grown without this problem though, so I will be switching back to those (e.g. Early Girl Hybrid).

Owner Response: Hi Carly, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed this tomato variety. Our horticulturist is always happy to chat about issues like blossom end rot. Feel free to reach out! Blossom end rot is caused by a lack of calcium., which may be due to low calcium levels in the soil but more often, there is plenty of calcium in the soil but its availability for uptake and transport of calcium is impaired. Make sure to water evenly and mulch the soil during dry period and periodically test your soil to ensure sufficient levels of calcium!
