Early, productive, and yummy variety bred by University of Idaho--perfect for containers!

Latah county growers Kelly Kingsland and Russell Poe grow this little gem, and they offer this description: Compact determinate.

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.
