Germany: 'Deutsches Gold', a rare tomato

Only available for a limited time: a rare beef tomato from Germany called 'Deutsches Gold'. Klaus Trübenecker and his daughter Simone offer the tomato on their stand at the Viktualienmarkt in Munich, according to the German website

Worldwide, there are 2,500 different tomato varieties. A really tasty one, however, is sometimes hard to find. However, the old tomato cultivar 'Deutsches Gold' is highly recommended. The yellow / orange, very juicy beef tomato has an excellent, sweet and mild taste, slightly reminiscent of a mango. This rare tomato is a heavyweight and contains hardly any seeds. The skin is thin and soft. "She's only available for four weeks a year," says Simone Trübenecker.

'Deutsches Gold' is best eaten raw, sprinkled with salt and drizzled with olive oil. The Trübenecker tomatoes are from the Austrian Burgenland, where they are grown by Binder. They cost 6.90 Euro per kilo.
