About Zapotec Ribbed

From the interior of Oaxaca, Mexico. Said to be grown by the Zapotec Indians. Zapotec Ribbed, AKA Zapotec Pink Ribbed, is a meaty beefsteak sized tomato that is heavily pleated and has an excellent flavor – mildly sweet with rich overtones and a lingering finish. A prolific indeterminate, regular leaf plant producing large, 10-16 oz., (almost triangular in shape) pink-red fruit. A great all-around tomato that is more like a paste and also grows well in the desert southwest climate. Excellent roasted in salsa, fresh in salads or sandwiches and is delightful in pasta sauces, especially when combined with the San Marzano Redorta tomato.
