Solanum lycopersicum

Synonyms: Lycopersicon esculentum

  • Climbing (indeterminate)
  • Well adapted to dry conditions
  • High yielding

Climbing (indeterminate). Originally from the Greek Island of Santorini, and historically grown with very little water, it is well adapted to dry conditions. This variety produces flat, round, 5-6cm fruits. Consistently maintaining its deep red colour, and with a sweet, slightly-acidic flavour, it is perfect for salads, bottling or preserving as a tomato puree, paste or juice. Santorini tomatoes are alleged to be the richest fruits in lycopene in the world.
