EFN EXCLUSIVE. This delicious 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 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 gem in this tomato. Very productive.
