About Mexico Midget

Craig LeHoullier of Raleigh, North Carolina, was sent this variety from Barney Laman, California, via a National Gardening Association seed swap in 1990. Barney claimed that he was given Mexico Midget by his brother, who was a truck driver, who obtained it while driving in Mexico, claiming it grew wild there. Indeterminate, regular leaf plant with long and lanky vines (typical for wild tomatoes), produce healthy crops of ½-¾”, round, dark-red fruits. Huge tomato flavor for such small fruits. Early plants continue to produce until it is killed by frost. Very good intense tomato flavor. Good disease resistance. Great for salads or selling in pints.
