Wild Tomato From Italy
Here is the Wild Tomato From Italy, Solanum lycopersicum. This tomato originates from the mainland of Italy. We have made hundreds upon hundreds of seed trades throughout the years and this is one of them. These small wild cherry tomatoes is said to grow wild throughout Italy and has no real background or history. We sometimes let them grow ever year for our own eating and sharing with neighbors as they come up almost ever year as volunteers ever since we received the seeds. This variety is a massive producer with numbers in the hundreds or even thousands of fruits! It is a small oblong cherry sized tomato that has a red skin when fully ripe with a red flesh inside getting to about .6 inch round-long and weighting around .125 oz. The thing about this variety is this tomato re-seeds it's self ever year! Plants can get to 12 feet tall with over a dozen tendril branches in really good soil but plants tend to get to 10 feet tall and are very heavy producers. The fully ripened fruits will have a deep rich solid color to them. Great tasting tomatoes for salads, eating fresh and for tomato sauce and paste! Open pollinated indeterminate regular leaf early to mid season 50 to 96 days or first frost. WARNING: do not plant this variety in your regular garden as it will reseed it's self and become a problem for that season. It's best to plant on edge of your yard or property where it can just grow wild.
