Puerto Cortes Tomato

2 Reviews | Write a Review

ROUGHWOOD/EFN EXCLUSIVE. This delicious little tomato -- our favorite for taste two years running -- was collected by the USDA in 1976 along a road near the village of Puerto Cortes, about 20 miles outside San Pedro Sula, the second largest city in Honduras (and presently one of the most violent cities in the world). The fruit are not uniform -- indicative of its semi-wild origins -- ranging from round to flat, rarely larger than an inch and a half in diameter. The taste is a perfect blend of sweet and sour. We first grew this tomato out of curiousity and to honor the resilient people of the San Pedro Sula region, which has been gravely affected by drug trafficking violence. We were pleasantly surprised to find a real diamond in the rough. Grown ecologically in New Jersey by the Experimental Farm Network.

What are the pros? Flavor

What are the cons? Small fruit


My friend and I split my Puerto Cortes starts and we both loved the tangy sweet tomatoes the plants produced. The size of the fruits varied, but I'd say that most were a large cherry size, with a much smaller number of the tomatoes being small salad size. Will definitely give them more garden space next season!

What are the pros? Don't like them at all.

What are the cons? Taste and texture


The plants are very resilient and easy to grow. Normally, I prefer a grape or cherry tomato over a regular tomato, but these are really sour. They don't even really taste like a tomato to me.
