Another unusual variety coming from Small Islands Seed company's seeds:

Species: Lycopersicon Cheesmanii

 The Wild Galapagos Island Tomato is a unique, delicious, and productive variety of tomato. These vigorous plants produce an abundance of orange grape sized tomatoes that are quite versatile in the kitchen, but their flavour really shines when roasted in the oven. They're not of the usual tomato species Lycopersicon Esculentum, but instead they're classified as Lycopersicon Cheesmanii; this species is endemic to the Galapagos Islands, so their flavour is quite different from most. This is a "must grow" variety for any tomato lover.

 

The indeterminate plants can use a good support to grow up, but because of their superior disease resistance, they can sprawl on the ground as they please without the risk of disease taking over the plant. They are resistant to blight, fusarium, and blossom end rot. Under ideal growing conditions, these plants can yield hundreds of fruits. They are ideal for roasting, use in salads, or fresh eating right off the vine.
