Galapagos Wild Tomato

         
 
5 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
(Solanum/Lycopersicon cheesmanii) Unique and rare, wild, small cherry tomato from the rocky, lava flow areas of Ecuador’s famed Galapagos Islands. These cherry shaped, yellowish-orange fruited tomatoes are flavorful and have lemon scented foliage. They enjoy heat and tolerate drought. Similar to cultivated tomatoes in flavor but with more disease and insect tolerance, as well as salt water tolerance. Plants typically vine, are very productive, and easy to grow. This hearty plant is favored by amateur plant breeders as a tasty variety that lends more disease, drought, and heat tolerance to tomatoes it is crossed with; making it an excellent choice for beginner tomato breeders!

What are the pros? Prolific

What are the cons? Taste

Review:

My tomatoes look like very small round cherries, not the oblong tomatoes in the photo. They’re very cute and prolific, but as other have mentioned they have a thick skin, large seeds and to me they taste bitter and not “tomato-y”. I may try cooking them...perhaps that will help. But these are not a tomato I’d eat raw.

Review:

This tomato was small with large seeds and a bland taste. Produced less fruit than most of the other varieties I tried this year as well. I would skip it.

What are the pros? Zero splitting

What are the cons? Weak flavor

Review:

Based on the description, I wasn't expecting much of these versus more developed cultivars, but they've held their own in terms of output. They have a thick orange skin when ripe. I don't think I've seen a single one split out of the hundred or so that I've picked. Other cherries I planted have had extensive splitting. They are the least flavorful of the varieties I planted, which is fine, the lack of splitting makes up for it. Of what I planted they were also some of the healthiest seedlings. All of my plants have nearly been stripped of leaves due to early blight, I can't say that this faired any better than the rest.

Great heirloom root stock

What are the pros? Double-duty root stock/tasty

What are the cons? None

Review:

We graft our heirloom tomatoes for greater productivity and better disease resistance. We usually use "Petit Moineau" wild current tomato and it works great. I'm eager to add Galapagos Wild Tomato to our tomato seeds collection as I suspect it'll do wonders as a root stock. Can't wait to see how it'll work boosting our heirloom health and productivity this summer.

Review:

Just reporting that a few of the Galapagos tomato seeds on my patio germinated today--12 days after planting on the 17th. I've taken them inside about 4 nights this month. Today is the 29th.
