Indeterminate 55 days to harvest Lycopersicon pimpinellifolium

HEIRLOOM Along with her sweet yellow cousin Coyote, Organic Chiapas Tomato is always our first and last tomatoes we savor each season and she doesn't trickle in: Chiapas' vigorous growth sends cascades of delectable fruit in every direction. Here's the thing: Chiapas and Coyote share the same genus as most other tomatoes, but not the same species (you'll find it above; all the plant nerds in your life will be very impressed with you)! Among other things, this means they're a little more wild, a little less domesticated, and as a result, they simply don't get classic tomato diseases like Late Blight, Early Blight and Septoria Leaf Spot. Delectable disease resistance!

Organic Chiapas Tomato

Indeterminate 55 days to harvest Lycopersicon pimpinellifolium

Description

HEIRLOOM Along with her sweet yellow cousin Coyote, Organic Chiapas Tomato is always our first and last tomatoes we savor each season. And she doesn’t trickle in: Chiapas’ vigorous growth sends cascades of delectable fruit in every direction. Here’s the thing: Chiapas and Coyote share the same genus as most other tomatoes, but not the same species (you’ll find it above; all the plant nerds in your life will be very impressed with you). Among other things, this means they’re a little more wild — a little less domesticated — and as a result, they simply don’t get classic tomato diseases like Late Blight, Early Blight and Septoria Leaf Spot. Delectable disease resistance!

If you’re looking for other deliciously disease-resistant tomatoes, you’re not alone and our Brandywise, Summer Sweetheart, Chiapas and Coyote are each resistant to Late Blight, Early Blight and Septoria Leaf Spot. Enjoy the abundance!

    Chiapas cherries are my new favorite as their abundance and disease resistance are unmatched. Just before you bite into their tender flesh and umami goodness, take a moment to enjoy the beautiful floral smell. It is a delight to the senses–a culinary masterpiece! Thrives in soil blocks and quickly becomes the most lovely kind of untamed in the garden. We enjoy many straight from the vine but they have the integrity to hold up in caprese and pasta salads as well. These do not dissapoint; we will grow them again and again!

    Wild is right! These cherry tomatoes are tasty and abundant, but the plant will defy your attempts to trellis it at every turn. I wouldn’t recommend single-stemming it on a post (like I did) but you might have better success with a Florida weave method. Honestly they still produce well just trailing on the ground. Taste is sweet-sour and, I think, a little yeasty. It was a neat experience growing this variety.

    Yes!! Florida weave is totally the way to go with these guys! So glad your pallet enjoyed these tangy little treats 🙂 -Heather & The Fruition Crew
