Jaltomata sp.) Used in Mexican cuisine, Jaltomatos are native to Central and South America. The one we offer has pea-sized purple berries that have a tart flavor. Only completely ripe fruit are to be eaten, as green berries and the rest of the plant may be poisonous. Fruits must be cooked and sweetened to obtain flavor. Used in relishes and jellies. Attractive plants are very prolific.

What are the pros? 3-4', productive, great jelly

What are the cons? None

Review:

I grew these against a fence. They were over crowded and it was a scorching hot summer in Pensacola, Fl and they still produced and produced:)! They came up very easy and the jelly we made from them was delicious and a beautiful blue/purple:)! Gave away pints for Christmas presents and everyone enjoyed it very much:)! Did not have to add extra sugar to sweeten them, just normal amount like for blueberry jelly. I highly recommend these. The plants were not fluffy (could be because I packed them in very tight), and with the heat looked kind of wilty, but that did not slow the berries which were nice size, a little bigger than English peas (maybe bigger if I had watered more). Very dark purple when ripe on the stalk like bushes, but the jelly was exotic looking to me with that blue/purple color:)! Definately want these every year. Now that we are back in Alabama I will try and post how they do here, later .

Review:

This had a great germination rate and strong growth. A rogue seed got into my yarrow plants and has quite happily set up home there! No fruit on the plants yet, but flowers are abundant. An attractive size leaf and foliage, that hasn't attracted pests.

Review:

Ok where do I start how about flavor? This thing has multiple flavor sections in its fruit. The seeds taste like the pepper from a green pepper and the fruit taste sweet and mildly fruity. The plant grows like a tomatillo plant and the berries are a decent size and produces well even in poor sandy soils. Amazing flavor! People need to work with this plant its got potential, definetly need to make some jams from this plant. Buy it its so worth it, give the plant lots of sun.
