Are these tomatoes hanging in your kitchen?
Fabulous Spanish red orange tomatoes round shaped with a pointy end. The plant produces large grapes or clusters. They were traditionally destined for consumption out of season, both fresh and when conserved. Once harvested, they were hanged on a string in a dry and aerated room in the house. Stored in certain conditions, they can be conserved for approximately 6 months. This type of tomato typically has a thick skin allowing it to last longer. The hanging tomatoes are called differently according to the region where they are grown. In Cataluna, they are called "Tomato de Colgar". They are now typically used for the ‘pan con tomate’ (bread with tomato) which consists of a slice of bread rubbed quickly with half a garlic clove, followed by half a ripe tomato and dressed with olive oil and salt. Fabulous taste and keep well after harvest. Need to be staked. indeterminate.
