TOMATO – PURPLE CALABASH

Lycopersicon esculentum

Known as the ugliest but best-tasting tomato you will ever eat. The exceptional sweet flavour from a weird in appearance Heritage Tomato. Purple blue wrinkled fruits blushed brown or chocolate when ripe for eating. The ugly appearance hides a real treasure. Typical of tomatoes pictured in 16th Century Herbal books.

Sow in a good mix of soil and lightly cover – keep moist but not wet Transplant when seedlings achieve 4 – 6 leaves.
