• Solanum quitoense Apricot Tomato Seed

    Apricot Tomato It doesn't get any more exotic than this! This prehistoric looking plant from the tropics is beautifully tinted with purple, fuzzy leaves. White flowers are followed by tomato-like fruit ripening to an orange-red with the flavor much like that of an Apricot. If you look close you can see protective spikes along the stems and even on top of the leaves. A truly amazing plant to grow! Notice a baby cardinal landed on one of our plants not bothered at all by the spines. A good place to hide out!

    Easy to grow. Just care for like a regular tomato plant.
