Purple Calabash

About Purple Calabash

Probably the most ‘purple’ of all the purple varieties. A distinctively beautiful drought tolerant tomato. Indeterminate, regular leaf plant produces small to medium (2 1/2 to 3-inch), flat, deeply ruffled, chocolate-brown to deep-purple fruit. Intensely rich, unique, almost wine-like flavors with a citrus finish. Crack resistant and stores well.
