Tomato SV4129TH

Vegetable Production

This indeterminate round variety is remarkable in the sense that it is highly adaptable to different growing conditions and growing areas within the Sub-Saharan region. Within South Africa it excels during the “Hot to cold” and “Cold to Hot” times of the year, both in the open field and protected conditions, delivering good quality fruit with good marketable yield potential and average fruit size of 140-160g. The plant of SV4129TH is medium compact with short internodes, but still possesses enough vigour to be utilised in greenhouse or protected conditions. The fruit quality of this variety is of the highest standards, with thick fruit walls and good fruit shape that is well and truly accepted by the South African consumer. Key advantages of this variety are its early harvest, versatility & adaptability with regards to growing conditions, times and cultivation methods. Of course, within South Africa, a large and diverse range of diseases occur, SV4129TH is well dressed for these occasions with a good reliable dis-ease resistance package, which aids the grower during difficult times.

All the above, but not only makes SV4129TH a true stalwart to use in your tomato growing program, a variety not to be underestimated.
