This unique and delicious tomato grows in distinct sections that can be pulled apart piece-by-piece without spilling juice. Reisetomate roughly translates to "traveller's tomato" in German, because one could eat a segment and then put it back in their bag for later. Delight in their oddity and enjoy their tangy, gentle flavour. A great addition to a child-friendly garden. Regular pruning will lead to a much larger harvest. Indeterminate and open pollinated.
This tomato holds a special place in my heart as it was the first heirloom tomato I ever grew. Its peculiar traits and history inspired my passion for preserving rare vegetables. The Reisetomate is a perfect example of a variety that is so irregular and unusual that there are few people willing to make a place for it in their garden, and it is therefore at risk of being lost. You can be a part of history by growing this fantastical variety!
Grown organically with love and tenderness in the Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada, in the summer of 2022. Germination tested. Minimum 30 seeds.
