Momotaro (aka Tough Boy)

Momotaro is the most popular tomato in Japan. A winner in many taste contests, this plant is sought out for its superior complex flavors. The Momotaro is a vigorous variety, well-adapted to the cooler temperatures in the Northwest. Plants produce crimson, oblate fruits that range from 6-8 ounces. These sweet, delicious tomatoes grow in clusters of 6-7 fruits and boast a tough skin that resists splitting. This is an excellent tomato for the home gardener as well as the market.
