This German cocktail tomato continually wins taste tests!

Winner of numerous Seed Savers Exchange taste tests, Igleheart does indeed produce tons of flavorful yellow tomatoes, though it hasn't won any of our Idaho taste tests as of yet! Still, it's a worthwhile specimen, highly prolific and easy to grow. We'd love your feedback if you LOVE Igleheart more than some of our other yellow cherries!

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!
