A tomato used a substitute for figs

Red fig tomato is a American heirloom tomato variety dating back to the 18th Century. The story goes that the Red Fig heirloom tomato was named after a popular sweet delicacy that was made using this tomato in the 1800's. The tomatoes were also packed away by gardeners for winter, left to dry and used as a substitute for fig. This variety produces heavy yields of 1½" pear-shaped bright red cherry tomatoes that are great for fresh eating and keep well in storage. Their taste is deliciously sweet, with a very sweet skin, making them ideal as a snack tomato.
