Item details

'Purple Calabash' is a variety that inspires strong opinion. Some abhor it, but others (like me) wouldn't consider a growing season without it. I find the flavour distinctive and complex, like a fine wine.

It's beauty is also in the eye of the beholder. Some find it's irregular, ribbed shape to be grotesque, yet I rate their earthy, mahogany flesh and sculptural shape to be one of the most beautiful of the many varieties I have grown.

There's no other tomato like it!



Special Notes:

Indeterminate vines. Ribbed/irregular shaped fruit and purple/brown or mahogany colour. Unusual flavour. Open-pollinated. Mid-season. 85 days.


No less than 25 seed per packet. [Please note that the number of seeds per package varies with each variety and is dependant on stock. Some varieties produce less seed than others so I adjust accordingly.]

Grown and harvested in the 2015 gardening season.

----------------------------------------

Growing:

Start seed indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost. Transplant outdoors after danger of frost has passed.

About My Seeds:

All of the seeds that I sell were lovingly homegrown and harvested by me, small scale, in my urban garden using organic methods only -- no chemicals or pesticides whatsoever. Tomato varieties are isolated to stay true using the flower bagging method and I test for germination quality. I take special care in choosing varieties that I find unusual, interesting and fabulous, and/or especially suitable for growing in small space gardens.
