Persimmon Tomato
Reviewed By: Jacque (Wenatchee, WA)
The Persimmon tomato is my favorite of all the tomato varieties. It is low acid, the flavor is escellent. It grows well in my large 24" pots, and is prolific. I have had some trouble finding the plants for about 2 years, so was happy to see that Gurney's had them. However, it was too late to start them this year. I'm hoping that Gurney's will off them again for 2014!
