Gold Rush Currant Wild Tomato
These tiny golden tomatoes are the size of a pea, but their flavor is huge. Complex, sweet and juicy.
Gold Rush Currant is a wild tomato, (Lycospericon pimpinfolium). It's vigorous, opinionated, and a bit unruly. It delivers hundreds of tiny tasty fruits, perfect for lunch box or gourmet garnish. The fruits grow on trusses of 10-12, easy to harvest, and they keep coming till frost.
Lycospericon pimpinfolium is native to the western slope of the Andes and it doesn't need to be babied. Plants set fruit early, even in cool climates, and are disease resistant. They got along without our help for hundreds of years.
Don't expect a tidy bush that minds it manners. Gold Rush sprawls and wanders where it please. Give it a corner of the garden or tie it up with a spiral of string. Its abundance of sweet little fruits will make up for its exuberance. Indeterminate, 75-80 days.
