Organic Coyote Tomato
We fell in love with Coyote in 2014 at Caroline Hunt's gorgeous Italy Hill Farm here in the Finger Lakes.
Truly it was a sad day in August: We were walking past 100+ plants all succumbing to various diseases including Late Blight. But there was Coyote sparkling, abundant and undeterred. Remarkable disease resistance yields an incredible abundance of these lemon yellow, full-flavored cherries. Resistant to both Late and Early Blight as well as Septoria Leaf Spot, Coyote is also one of the first tomatoes we harvest, always in early July.
Large clusters of neon lemon fruit resistant to cracking are luscious all season. We enjoy them in salads and salsa as well as snacking on them in the fields, all the way to frost.
We are so grateful for Craig LeHoullier who was given seeds from Maye Clement at her home in Mexico in the 1980s and has since so generously shared these seeds with the world.
