Produced by a Hawaiian tomato breeder, who named the Anahu variety after one of his students who died in the Korean war. This is a very productive variety that produces round, uniform ripening, red fruit with very sweet flavors. A good choice for hot & humid climates. Resistant to the common root knot nematode, fusarium wilt, gray leaf spot and one strain of spotted wilt virus. It is also tolerant to tobacco mosaic virus. The fact that its resistant to root knot nematode is very important to us South Florida growers. If you had nematode damage on your tomatoes last year consider trying a resistant variety this year to see how its growth is improved.
