Oregon Star

Oregon Star

An early maturing, red, paste-type tomato, 'Oregon Star' fruits are firm making them easy to pick and to peel. The fruits are large, irregularly shaped, and tend to be seedless (parthenocarpic). The later wave of fruits that mature towards the end of the season are smaller, contain viable seeds, and are where the seed harvest comes from. The fruits keep well both on and off plant and are good for slicing as well as processing. 

A sister to 'Oregon Pride', 'Oregon Star' is another tomato variety that came out of Dr. James R. Baggett's program at Oregon State University. It was stabilized from a cross between 'Santiam' and 'Roma' and was released in 1993.
