A very rare, slender, strikingly long (3"), tapered paste tomato that ends in a point. Originally collected in the Honduran capital city of Tegucigalpa, this tomato becomes a favorite of most everyone who grows it. It pairs a deep red color with a rich tomato flavor good for sauces, paste, canning, or fresh eating.

Dusty grew this in 2019 in Minnesota, and they were very productive. Fruit kept on coming.

These seeds were grown by Dusty Hinz and Zach Binsfeld in Minnesota.

GROWING TIPS: Start seeds indoors in March or early April, transplant outside after danger of last frost. Space plants 24-36 inches apart. They will benefit from a trellis or tomato cage. Full sun preferred.
