It also goes under the botanical name of Lycopersicon cheesmaniae var. minor or L. cheesmanii var. minor but the (Solanum galapagense) is the accepted botanical name. Their are 2 species native to the Galapagos Islands, major and minor. There are also 2 variations of the minor, a hairy type (1) and a non-hairy type (2). This listing is for the minor (Solanum galapagense) non-hairy type (2) variety. The wild tomato (Solanum galapagense) from Galapagos Archipelago is a very rare tomato type to come across! This Indeterminate, regular leaf, perennial tomato plant produces 3/8" sized, orange, tomatoes that have a smooth skin (non-hairy) and can be a heavy producing variety. We found this variety to be resistant to most diseases. The fruits are edible and delicious BUT may have a toxicity so grow it as an ornamental till further research is done. We have eaten them already and had no side affects. This species tends to handle cooler climates and grows well in very wet conditions. Seeds are tiny an need some attention and very slow at start. Open pollinated 65-90 days.
