Reisetomate Tomato

The most novel tomato we have seen, this tomato is like a big bunch of cherry tomatoes all fused together: an amazing trait that had everyone here asking questions about the alien-looking, bumpy tomatoes. Also called "Traveler tomato" ("reise" is German for "travel" or "journey") for the ability to tear it apart a piece at a time, with no need for a knife. This type of tomato traces its roots to Central America where the native people would carry traveler tomatoes on trips, to eat as they walked. Bright red tomatoes taste--well, rather sour, strong and acid. The perfect tomato for those who love raw lemons, but who cares? They are still far-out and groovy.

What are the pros? Delicious, low maintenance,

What are the cons? Not a canning tomato

Review:

These were very unique and tasty tomato, not sour as the catolog described. I loved these tomatoes and so did my children. When kids love a fruit or vegetable it is a keeper! These were easy to grow. I ran out of cages and these grew on the ground just fine. I had no troubles with these tomatoes when it comes to growing. My only complaint and it is a small one is they are not good for canning. I tried and too much of the tomato was wasted. They are amazing for fresh eating and I will simply grow different tomatoes for canning. I highly recommend these tomatoes to others especially to families with children.

What are the pros? novelty

What are the cons? small, lacking in taste

Review:

I was charmed by the novelty of the photos of this tomato, and bought some seeds last for last year's garden. I planted these as one of 12 different varieties I grew in 2015 (all purchased from RareSeeds), and these are one of 3 tomato varieties (from the 12) that won't be going into rotation in the 2016 garden. The cluster of tomatoes was much smaller than I expected, and they didn't ripen at the same time. They also didn't have much tomato taste and yield was poor. Yes they are cute and novel, but at least for me that wasn't enough to allocate space to them again this year.

What are the pros? Flavour beats almost anything.

What are the cons? Don't crop for very long.

Review:

One of the best tasting tomatoes I have ever eaten. Perfect for sandwiches and mixed salads, sweet with a subtle lemony bite that cuts through and delights the taste buds. If you like a tomato that tastes like tomato and doesn't get lost as a sort of squishy filling somewhere there amongst the cheese and the ham and the capsicum, this is ideal.

What are the pros? Impress your guests

What are the cons? Blossom end rot

Review:

This is a fun tomato to grow if you have extra space in your garden and you want to impress your party guests. Plants were healthy and productive, but I wasn't thrilled with the taste and I had problems with blossom-end rot. It was fun for one year, but I won't grow it again. Grow it just for the fun and amusement!
