- The traveller's tomato
- Resembles smaller tomatoes fused together
- Break off a portion to eat
- Excellent novelty value for kids
- Incredibly hardy and easy to grow
Distorted and weird, but completely brilliant, this ugly-but-beautiful heirloom looks like lots of red tomatoes fused together. Germans call it ‘the traveller's tomato’ because one tomato lasts a long time when travelling - simply break off one portion at a time and enjoy. Originally from central America, it's one of the hardiest tomatoes available, and a real novelty with kids. Harvest in 13 weeks from transplant. Yields 1.1kg per plant.
