Tomato, Egg from Phuket (Organic)
Solanum lycopersicum. White/Pink Paste. 60-65 days. Indet.
Early producer of loads of small, whitepink, 1 oz egg-shaped fruit on rampant vines. Flavor is good for a Thai tomato, and a little tart. Most Thai tomatoes are meant for cooking in stir-fry, curry, or Thai salad and therefore selected very differently than Western tomatoes. Will hold shape when cut in half and stir fried. A very unique tomato. Collected in Thailand by Ulla Grall, proprietor of Bio-Saatgut seed company in Germany.
Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil as early as February, but no later than April. Keep warm and well-watered. Up pot seedlings into 4” pots once they have two true leaves. Transplant into the garden once danger of frost has passed.
Collect seeds from ripe fruit by squeezing into a jar and add 25% more water. Wait a few days for mold to form. When seeds sink and gel-sac is gone, stir, add water, then decant and rinse to clean. Dry thoroughly. Tomatoes are mostly self-pollinating; isolation is not usually needed for seeds to be true to type.
