Tomato, Payette

  • $4.00


Solanum lycopersicum

An Idaho bred variety! Early 3” fruits on dwarf plants with handsome foliage.

Wonderfully early and exceptionally self-sufficient plants could make do with very little support. Highly ornamental, finely lobed foliage makes this a handsome gent! Prolific, too--TONS of 3" slicers over a long season! Determinate, sturdy slicing tomato.

Tomatoes are native to northwestern South America and by at least 500 BC they had been domesticated and were being cultivated as far north as modern-day Mexico, enjoyed by Aztec and other civilizations. They spread to Europe and the Caribbean through the Spanish colonizers, where they became staple parts of the food culture in many European countries as well.

Bred at the University of Idaho and released to the public in 1962. Click here for the original variety release notice.
