Moira is what I call a “compact” variety, meaning that it is as short/bushy/small as a dwarf yet does not have the rugose leaves and tree-like growth pattern that were somehow designated as mandatory qualities to be called “dwarf” in the tomato world. But go Canada! Moira is another very nice early Canadian variety.
The plant topped at 3 feet in a 5 gallon pot and gave an excellent harvest of 4 ounce perfect small salad globes. With small cores, there is no waste.
At full ripeness (such as the sliced one in the picture), the flesh is tender and the flavor is a smooth balance of sugar and acid with a leaning towards the “tomatoey” rather than the sweet. The gel is thick and scarlet, likely denoting its high crimson gene parents, which were: (Blitz x High Crimson) x High Crimson) x Trent), and the seeds really cling to the gel.
Moira was new to me this year, and I liked it very much. It is a solid producer of excellent all-purpose tomatoes with plants that take up little space and pot size. NOTE: Limited stock; 15 seeds per packet.
