Anaho was developed by Dr. Jim Gilbert at the University of Hawaii, and is probably the best know Hawaiian tomato. 

It is named after Bill Anahu, by Dr, Gilbert, the Kamehameha graduate's former teacher,  a  WWII fighter pilot who was killed in action during the war. It is probably the best known Hawaiian tomato, and is still popular.

Resistant to the common root knot nematode, fusarium wilt, gray leaf spot and one strain of spotted wilt virus. Anahu R2 is also tolerant to tobacco mosaic virus.

Anahu is a determinate variety with very good production, producing lots of 5-8 oz., round, uniform ripening, red fruit with very sweet flavors.

There's some confusion regarding Anahu's pedigree.  There is documentation the parents of Anahu are Michigan State Forcing x L. peruvianum, then back-crossed to MSF twice. The pedigree for Anahu, from Dr. Gilbert's notes is Molokai x HES 4857.  We're still trying to sort this out.  BTW, the MSF x L. peruvianum cross resulted in a single F1 plant.  Cuttings from this plant were sent to tomato breeding programs in Australia, Hawaii, and 8 mainland states.
