Gooseberry tomato (Solanum pimpinellifolium)

The smallest tomato you've ever eaten. The gooseberry tomato is actually a cousin of the common tomato, native to South America. The plant produces clusters of several small, sweet fruits. The seeds you hold in your hands, however, have a particular origin… Léon was a gruff gardener who did not like children. Cigarette in mouth, he chased them out of hand when they got too close to the plot he was cultivating in a community garden in Montreal. But they only had it for his tomatoes, which shone in the sun like sweet little rubies. In fact, Léon didn't like many people... but we loved his tomatoes so much! So one full moon night (really!), I snuck into the garden, and stole some seeds from it. I've been growing it ever since and my kids love it!

Gradually acclimate to outdoor conditions about 10 days before planting by taking them out during the day. When planting, lay the plants horizontally, slightly arching the plant to bring out the leaves upwards.
