Wild Coyote Tomato

Coyote Tomato: Indeterminate vining plants.
50-60 days

Coyote tomatoes were originally found growing wild near Veracruz Mexico where they are called Tomatio Sylvestre Amarylla. They were brought to Pennsylvania by a Mexican immigrant who gave the seed to a local tomato collector who was so impressed by the flavor of the fruit and the vigorous growth habit that he grew the tomato plants saved the seed, and eventually began offering the seed to the public.

Habitat: Coyote tomatoes produced well through severe heat and drought with only occasional light watering. Fruits seem to become sweeter under dry growing conditions.

Description: Pale yellow fruits up to 1/2" inch in diameter with a sweet tangy wild fruity flavor. Easy to grow vigorous and prolific plants bear heavily. The plants need to be staked or grown in tall tomato cages as they tend to ramble.
