Zapotec Pleated Tomato, Incan Heirloom, 25 Seeds, Loves Heat, Drought-tolerant:
'Zapotec' Pleated Tomato
This spectacular scalloped heirloom was found in the dry mountains of Mexico, where it's been grown by the Zapotec Indians. It's sweet tasting, very ornamental, and it loves heat. Heavy yields of 1/2 pound fruits grow on sturdy vines that love desert heat.
Zapotec's ruffled shape makes for scalloped slices - very pretty on the plate, and it's terrific hollowed and stuffed. Gorgeous and tasty, this is a chef's tomato.
Even more important in hot climates, Zapotec thrives in extreme heat and is actually drought-tolerant. Seeds are somewhat slow to sprout, but this a real winner in the Southwest. Indeterminate. 80 days.
