Solanum lycopersicum

Divine heirloom with absolutely superb flavor...and he's quite a looker, too!

One of the most striking varieties we grow. Big, meaty fruits ripen to deep, smoky maroon with green-tinted shoulders that sometimes look tye-died! This is the kind of tomato songs are written about, with skin so thin it barely makes it to the plate, and an outta-this-world flavor. Indeterminate, OP.

Tomatoes are native to northwestern South America and by at least 500 BC they had been domesticated and were being cultivated as far north as modern-day Mexico, enjoyed by Aztec and other civilizations. They spread to Europe and the Caribbean through the Spanish colonizers, where they became staple parts of the food culture in many European countries as well. Their circuitous journey brought them from the Western Hemisphere to the Eastern and back again!
