Mango tomato is a very old and rare tomato variety, originating from France. If you are into exotic fruits, you are going to love this one! The mango tomato variety is indeterminate, very hard to find and only available in a few places. This tomato will surprise you with its smooth flesh texture, similar to a ripe mango. The inside of the tomato is unusual with uneven divisions. Very juicy, the mango tomato tastes quite sweet, with very little acidity and a delicious taste. This is one for the collector. Seeds grown and seed saved in Cork, Ireland. Only 1 seed packet can be ordered at a time.
