About Calabacito Rojo

According to William Woys Weaver, it is a documented very old heirloom in Philadelphia gardens (1795). Seed was collected in Chiapas State (Mexico) in 1991.
Vigorous indeterminate, bushy plants with regular leaf foliage produce loads of small, flattened and ruffled red fruits, 1-3 oz., 2-3″ in diameter. Very beautiful, whole and sliced up. Very good full tomato flavor, more acidic than sweet, quite rich. Very high yields. This tomato produces loads of fruits into early October, when many other varieties stopped.
