The Red Fig tomatoes have been grown in America since the 18th century. An heirloom tomato named for a sweet delicacy that was made with this tomato and popular in the mid 1800s. Historically they were dried and packed away for winter use in substitute of figs. Big leafy, indeterminate, regular-leaf tomato plants yield hundreds of 1 1/2-inch, pear-shaped, bright-red cherry tomatoes that have wonderful, delicious, sweet flavors with a very sweet skin, making this a delightful snacking tomato. Red Fig is a tasty and colorful complement to Beam’s Yellow Pear. A perfect choice to serve in a tomato salad or as a tasty decoration to culinary creations and to use for making a delicious tomato chutney. Rare tomato seeds.
