Origin: Mexico

The deep red fruits of this cherry tomato are even smaller that it’s yellow counterpart, Coyote. The story behind this tomato, as told by Craig LeHoullier, is that the seeds were received from an anonymous person by a New Mexico truck driver during a delivery to Texas. Like other wild cherries, it grows rampantly and produces hundreds of fruits. The huge, intense flavor in this tiny tomato rivals what you would expect from a much larger beefsteak-type variety.
