Tomato Homosa

Medium sized red heritage tomato on an indeterminate plant.

Description

From the 2018 Seed Swap.

A cultivar maintained by the Heritage Seed Library, and that’s all I can find on the web, no information as to where it comes from or anything.

These started ripening in August 2019. My problem is that 2019 is being a bad year for tomatoes so I don’t know how they would compare in quantity with other similar standard red tomatoes (Ailsa Craig, Alicante, etc.) so its difficult to determine whether they are better or worse. From a flavour perspective, they’re “OK” nothing particularly special.
