TOMATO REISTOMATE RARE PERUVIAN BUNCHED TOMATOES HEIRLOOM SEEDS $1.60

TOMATO REISTOMATE KEEPS GROWING AND PRODUCING OVER YEARS AND YEARS! LEAVE IT LONG ENOUGH AND YOU WILL NEED A CHAINSAW TO CUT IT DOWN! AMAZING BUNCHES OF SUCCULENT TOMATOES FUSED TOGETHER! COMES FROM THE ANDES WHERE THE SHERPAS JUST NEED TO PULL ONE OFF TO EAT IT WITHOUT A KNIFE!

This odd looking tomato is actually a rare Peruvian heirloom . Actually a cluster of smaller fruits stuck together, it was bred for the convenience of locals trekking the Andes. Pull them apart and eat one at a time; no need for a knife.

The bright red fruit have a distinctive flavour, tart, intense, never boring. In warm climates, plants keep growing from one year to the next, so vigorous it can take a chain saw to cut one down!

The most novel tomato we have seen, this tomato is like a big bunch of cherry tomatoes all fused together: an amazing trait that had everyone here asking questions about the alien-looking, bumpy tomatoes. Also called “Traveller Tomato” (“reise” is German for “travel” or “journey”).
