The Rio Grande Tomato is a classic plum/paste tomato that gets along with heat, humidity, and drought, but that’s only one of its maravilloso qualities. The plant produces muchos bright red, egg-shaped fruits with a flavor that’s well-balanced between dulce and acidic. Especially bueno for pastes and sauces, but it wouldn’t mind being chopped up into fresh pico de gallo with a little onion, jalapeño, and cilantro.

  • Heat tolerant
  • Sweet and acidic
  • High yields
  • Good for Southern jardines
