Organic Rosella Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) Indeterminate
This delectable heirloom produces abundant, tumbling vines of tiny (1/2”) purple-pink cherry tomatoes. The flavor description could come from a sommelier – bright berry and grape notes, sweet with a touch of acidity. Rosella is happy in your garden or raised bed. We love our Rosellas fresh, grilled, sautéed, and in gently simmered in sauces with sweet basil and a snippet of oregano. Rosella has few seeds for a smaller cherry and is sturdy enough for market growers.
