Homsi tomato or Homs 11 tomato is an indeterminate heirloom tomato variety from Homs, in Syria. This potato leaf tomato plant produces good yields of medium size red tomatoes, ribbed and slightly flattened, quite sweet with an incredibly intense taste of traditional tomato. We have been harvesting these tomatoes for the last few months and we are quite surprised at the resilience of the plants that have been producing up to know and are still showing new flowers. This is one that is very close to our heart as the seeds were given to us by a family member. Seeds grown and seed saved in Cork, Ireland.
