The Burmese Sour Tomato is a heirloom tomato from Burma, slightly flattened and ribbed, weighing between 150g and 300 g that ripens to bright red color. This variety is indeterminate and very productive. We got the seeds from a heritage tomato collectioner years ago. This tomato is very attractive with its irregular and curvy shape and does wonder in curries, summer salads or eaten as is. We love the look and the tangy flavor.
