Gardeners' Notes:

Positive sanpedro On Nov 12, 2008, sanpedro from Espanola, NM (Zone 6b) wrote:

Once established, the plants thrived. Growth habit is somewhat tangled.
Fruit shape is very unusual, almost like cloves of garlic. Flesh dry, somewhat bland, but the weather was cool in 2008. Saved seed, will grow again in 2009.
I believe this variety is from Guatemala.

I've grown them outside. Allthough the season was cold and wet it gave me lots of ripened tomatoes. Strong and healthy plants, tasty tomatoes.

An oddity of nature, with cherry tomatoes that are partially fused together into one single fruit. You can easily separate the individual parts and get clove looking cherry tomatoes. Not an astounding flavor, but definitely a curiosity that will bring wonder and fun to the garden. From Guatemala.
