Gallo Plum

Gallo Plum was sent to Craig LeHoullier in a substantial National Gardening Association-initiated seed swap in 1990 by Charlotte Mullens of West Virginia. Charlotte collected tomatoes from many other gardeners and sent Craig many that he listed in the SSE for the first time, such as Armenian and Giant Syrian (in addition to Gallo Plum). Indeterminate, wispy regular leaf plants produce 5″ long, 3-9 oz., pepper-shaped, elongated, red fruits with pointed end. Beautiful meaty dark red flesh, small seed cavities that may be partially hollow. Excellent sweet flavor, great for eating fresh or it makes a great tomato sauce.
