Miltomato Valisto


Out of stock

From a species originally indigenous to Africa, this delicious and hardy annual fruit was delivered to mexican wheat and barely fields by spanish colonizers where it then spread to indigenous corn fields, and has been surviving as a feral and garden plant there for the past 400 years. Easily incorporated into corn growing systems, the plants are adaptive to various light levels. Getting taller than most other nightshade berry species, Miltomato Valisto is still suitable for container growth. The profuse abundance of berries will leave you with enough to preserve after fresh eating. When cooked the tart flavor changes to be almost the same as blueberry. Superior to Garden Huckleberry in production, hardiness, and flavor in my opinion. In areas with no frost, this plant may survive as a perennial. at least 35 seeds per packet.
