THE 2024 CATALOGUE IS HERE!!! And it's our best yet. Featuring over 550 crops — 100 of them new — this is our biggest catalogue ever. NOTE: After delaying most shipments due to the extreme cold weather, we are working through the backlog now. Thank you for your patience!
This is a rare wild species of tomato that is mostly found growing by the seashore in the Galapagos Islands in the eastern Pacific, though it's also found growing further inland on the volcanic slopes of the islands of Fernandina and Isabela. The other tomato species endemic to the Galapagos Islands — Solanum cheesemaniae, with slightly larger and less hairy fruit — is more commonly known as "Galapagos Tomato," so since this one has no commonly accepted English name we're calling it "Wild Galapagos Tomato" (even though both grow wild there). These seeds from from a population selected by our friend Joseph Lofthouse of Paradise, Utah, for germination without heroic seed treatments and for the ability to mature fruits in a short-season mountain ecosystem. It seems Joseph's are less hairy than the wild ones (see photos). Produces tasty currant-sized orange fruits.
