Heirloom! This French delight has played a dominant role in our summer greenhouses ever since we first planted it 8 years back. Deep orange, apricot-sized fruits are packed with an unmatched zesty, tropical flavor. In fact, Jaune Flamme won our CSA taste test in 2014 with its unique mix of sweetness and tartness. The vigorous and prolific plants are one of the first to set summer fruit and last to peter out in the fall. A no brainer. Indeterminate.
