Solanum peruvianum
HOW TO GROW PERUVIAN TOMATO

Start indoors 6–8 weeks before last frost, plant out 1–2 weeks after last frost. Requires bottom heat for good germination. Pot up to 3-4” pots when first true leaves develop, bury to first leaves. Gradually harden off in full sun 1–2 weeks before transplanting after last frost. Transplant out stocky 8 to 10” tall plants. Apply super phosphate for high early yields and to avoid blossom-end rot. Too much nitrogen causes excessive vegetation. If fruit cracks, reduce watering. Indeterminate varieties are trellised, fruit ripens over an extended period. Prune to one leader pinching suckers in leaf axles every 7 to 10 days. Thirty days before last frost prune leaders to ripen remaining fruit. Determinate or bush varieties do not need pruning or trellising. Soil pH 4.3-6.6. Hardiness zones 4. Annual.

Days from maturity calculated from the date of transplant. Average 8,400 seeds per ounce. Federal germination standard for common tomato: 75%. However, this is not the common tomato, Solanum lycopersicum. Usual seed life: 4-10 years. Isolation distance for seed saving: 75-150 feet.

Planting Depth 1/4”
Soil Temp. Germ. 70-85˚F
Days to Germ. 6-10
Plant Spacing 24”
Row Spacing 3-5”
Days To Maturity 150–180

Strong indeterminate vine with bright yellow flowers in clusters. Grows vigorous runners close to the ground that extend 3–5’ feet and does not grow up tall like some of the other species. This is a hypertress species. In one hypertress of 84 flowers, all set fruits. Tiny grape like seeds. Considered to be difficult to cross to the common tomatoes, successes, if any, come from using it's pollen to make crosses. Fruits ripen green with purple shading to white when ripe, between cherry and currant size, slight fuzz. Fruits are edible, not choice, can be harvested in bunches like grapes. Highly unusual non-tomato taste, taro root and anise aroma. Very late tomato, few fruit, mostly flowering even by early October, harvesting in November after April 1st start in Zone 8, Southern Oregon. Seeds organically from USDA Germplasm Resources Information Network (GRIN). Approximately 56,700 seeds per ounce. Tags: Type: Indeterminate, Harvest: Late, Color: Bi-Colored, Size: Currant, Shape: Round, Specialty: Hypertress, Season: Summer, Certification: Organic.

Dr. Alan Kapuler, “Likely, S. peruvianum is a complex hybrid population with considerable variation in growth habit, leaf shape and tress characteristic leading people to assume that it is several species.” A wild tomato native of Peru and Ecuador. It makes small sulfur yellow flowers and yellowish green, slightly bitter fruits with brownish green stripes or lilac shades. Fruits are usually not eaten raw but cooked and added to stews. Easily grown in any rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot. Delicious tomato recipes.

Companions: basil, parsley, chives, onions, carrots, marigolds, nasturtium
Inhibitors: cabbage family, fennel, dill, potatoes, borage
