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.

    Germination Info
    1) Prepare for planting. Sprout tomato seeds in small containers, preferably 4" or smaller. In-ground germination is not recommended. Use a standard potting mix that is well drained. Start seeds in containers approximately 8 weeks prior to the planned set-out date. Plants should ultimately be transplanted to the garden 1-2 weeks after the expected date of last frost.
    2) Plant seeds. Plant seeds 1/4" deep in the soil. Cover with soil and water carefully. Overwatering can cause fungal growth which leads to seed rot. Excess water can also bury seeds deep in the soil where they will not be able break the surface. Water when the soil surface just begins to dry. Multiple seeds can be planted in a single starter container, but should be thinned once seedlings appear so only a single plant remains. Seeds do not require light for germination but some light source should be provided for seedlings once they emerge from the soil.
    3) Germination. Soil should be kept consistently warm, from 70-85F. Cool soils, below about 60-65F, even just at night, will significantly delay or inhibit germination. Hot soils above 95F will also inhibit germination.
    4) Care of seedlings. Once a few true leaves have developed, seedlings should be slowly moved outside (if sprouted indoors) to ambient light. Care should be taken not to expose seedlings to direct, scorching sun so plants may need to be hardened off via slow sun exposure. Hardening off can be done using a shaded or filtered light location, as well as protection from strong winds, rain or low humidity. Hardening off time varies, but can take 5-10 days.
    5) Planting out. Plant in the ground once danger of frost has past and daytime temperatures consistently reach 65F. Plants can be spaced as close as 24" apart. Germination time: 1-3 weeks under ideal conditions.
