Litchi Tomato

Price: $ 7.50

Solanum sisymbriifolium
Double warning: I am seriously thorny but very addictive! This somewhat bizarre tomato and potato relative produces large flowers similar to potatoes followed by delicious richly flavoured fruit which are a bit like a cross etween a cherry and a tomato - a much richer flavour than tomatoes. It produces all summer and into winter and we have found that the shrub tolerates light frosts and has overwintered here in our frosty climate. Otherwise the plant enjoys the same conditions as tomatoes. All parts of the shrub are thorny, even the calyx, so you must pick fruit with great care, but you will be amazed at how, despite this, it keeps you coming back for more!!. Grows to a height of 1.5m. Full sun. Protect from late and heavy frosts.
