Tomato Brain Reisetomate Peruvian Traveler Seeds
Big packet of 40 seeds so you get a decent amount of plants.
I got these seeds from a French customer originally and they called them “brain tomato”.
No idea what to expect when I planted them as I didn’t have any picture to go from.
As you can see, the result was quite surprising!
I have since discovered that they are most likely the “Reisetomate” or “Peruvian Traveler” an heirloom variety made famous for its ability of storing really well, and being torn apart without a knife.
I’m 85% sure that’s what they are now, although the taste is not as sour/acid as is described by most folks?
More like a “Beefsteak” or “Oxheart” in flavor that an acid “Cherry” style?
Anyway, whatever it is, its bloody awesome!
Even the flowers look really cool.
Big as your thumb and all twisted up and curly.(sorry I have no pics of the flowers as our hard drive crashed…)
Medium sized plant that would probably prefer staking.
I didn’t bother and just let them sprawl around as they wanted to.
I grew them in 9litre plastic buckets with a hole in the bottom, in a mix of potting mix, cow manure and sand.
So cool that I have replanted already!
That’s about it really….
Oh yeah, not many packs so be quick!
Grown by us organically, no nasties, no chems, no problems!!!
