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? Started strong.

What are the cons? Never had a chance to try.

Review:

I had a bad experience trying to start these because I trusted an organic potting mix after initially starting seeds. They were thriving in my organic peat pots & starter soil. When they reached about 2"-3" I added an organic mix purchased at WalMart. At first things went well, but I began to notice they ceased to gain height. Then little mushrooms began to grow everywhere. The roots rotted completely & all seedlings died. I disposed of everything in the trash. Feared to try composting. The seeds all sprouted & seemed very healthy until the organic mix. Also planted Black Vernissage (freebie) that suffered same fate. Still have some Vernissage seeds & will try next year. Thinking about trying Reisetomate again. This floored me. Never had it happen before & was too far along in season to try from seed again. Was it the mushrooms? Could other fungus in the mix be the culprit?

What are the pros? Quick and Prolific

What are the cons? None

Review:

Tall (about 36") dense bush like plant with small leaves. I used a simple round tomato cage for mine and it was sufficient. I always have 3 - 5 tomatoes in different stages of ripening on the plant at all times. My husband says they taste amazing and not like lemons at all. I love how you really can pull off parts of the Tomato to eat and the rest of the tomato keeps well.

What are the pros? Tasty, Survives anything

What are the cons? Fruit are a bit slow to ripen

Review:

We've grown several kinds of tomatoes the past few years, and these have quickly become our garden staple. They're odd looking for sure, but these ugly things are absolutely delicious and would probably survive the apocalypse. Out of the five varieties we planted last year, this one survived drought, heat waves, cold, AND flooding. They thrived and produced heavily in all weather except a week of drowning rain, and even that couldn't kill all of them off. Our three largest plants only died in a surprise December freeze, and they still had tomatoes growing on the vine. Truly, this plant is a survivor. The description says it's a very acidic tomato, but we found the fruit to be delicious. It might not be the neatest slicing tomato, but the fruit comes in both more-lumpy and less-lumpy shapes. The less lumpy ones are still decent slicers, and the rest can be used as any other tomato. If you're looking for a unique and unkillable beast, the Reisetomate is the tomato for you.

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.
