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.
