I planted half a dozen seeds of Ciudad Victoria a few years ago, and the tomatoes naturalized in my Tucson, Arizona, garden, self-seeding and returning every spring. They are extremely heat tolerant; I grew them unshaded where they were in the sun until late afternoon. And they're delicious!—full tomato flavor in a tiny fruit with delicate skin. I had no problem with pests or disease.
