J.F. Macbr's Wild Tomato
Here is the J.F. Macbr's Wild Tomato (LA1339) PI 365949, Solanum corneliomulleri. This wild tomato originates and was collected from Lima Peru in 1971. This plant grows at 5,600 feet ASL and is a very rare tomato type to come across! This perennial Indeterminate, regular leaf tomato plant produces .5 inch sized, pale green but purplish-green when ripe tomatoes that have a smooth but slightly furry skin and can be a heavy producing variety. We found this variety to be resistant to most diseases and is self compatible. The fruits are edible and are ripe when fallen to the ground. This species tends to handle colder climates and grows well in very dry conditions but can withstand high heat summers. It was once classified as a subspecies of S. peruvianum but is now considered a distinct species in 2008. Seeds are tiny an need some attention when starting, open pollinated 65 to 95 days.
