Purple Calabash, Aztec heirloom tomato seeds

Price for Package of 5 seeds.

Ruffled fruit, luscious flavor, drought-tolerant, crack-resistant, drought-tolerant tomato, stores well.

Probably the most 'purple' of all the purple varieties. Purple Calabash dates back to the Aztecs of pre-Columbian Mexico, who mixed it with hot chiles and ground squash seeds to make a special salsa for fish and meat. Its flavor is rich and concentrated like a simmered sauce. 

Fantastic fresh, it really comes through in sauces and pastes.

Dark red and ruffled as a prom dress, Purple Calabash is typical of tomatoes pictured in 16th Century Herbal books before tomatoes were bred to look perfect.

Crack-resistant and stores well.

Indeterminate. 85 days.
