Early maturing, 3-6' tall prolific vines are easily grown. Large, flat-round green 2-4 oz fruits are sweet yet tart and wonderful in green salsa or Mexican cooking. Tolerant to extreme conditions from dry farming to cool nights. Adapted to grow in both southern and northern climates. A papery shell encases the green fruit. It turns from green to brown and splits when the fruit is ripe.
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
Indeterminates produce plants as large as you will allow them to grow. They have many widely spaced branches, numerous suckers, and produce tomatoes all season long. These are the varieties that can be manipulated in all sorts of fashion to make the plants conform to your needs.
