Tomatoes may have originated in what today is Peru, and wild tomatoes can still be found in the Andes. - Planet Natural
This variety came from Bob Ferguson of Washington, DC, who in 2015 found a mysterious tomato volunteer growing in a potted plant. After two seasons, it has been amazingly hearty, productive, and delicious. A baseball-size fruit with great flavor, it is the first to ripen in our garden.
