Brazilian Beauty Tomato
A wonderful early tomato. I found this at the local farmer' market. The vendor said that he was at his brother's nursery in the 1970's when a hippie van pulled up, full of tomato plants for sale. The nursery didn't buy them, but he got a few and took them home. This dusky-mahogany saladette-size tomato was the standout, and he had been saving seed ever since. Who named it and why I have not discovered.
I was impressed with the earliness, and sweet flavor of this selection. The very juicy fruits form in clusters. Individual tomatoes can reach 3" across, but 2" is about average. It was still pumping out tomatoes at the end of the summer, and even in a not-very-sunny spot. The vines don't get very big, but they keep producing all season. Extremely rare. 15 seeds
