identify the tomato?

Postby OscarSidcup » Thu Dec 15, 2016 3:24 pm

Hello

My nephew and his wife have recently moved to the Central African Republic and are keen gardeners (which is also a good thing as there are no supermarkets or Ocado delivery there!). While preparing their allotment (in the style of hugelkultur as the soil is poor) they came across a few plants that they have nurtured and their first harvest has just yielded cucumbers and tomatoes. Picture below. Identifying the cucumber was the easy bit - it is Poona Khera (actually an Indian variety!), but how do we go about identifying the tomato variety? Any thoughts welcome!

Suspect it's a local variety that weve never heard of. It would be Interesting to see whether the effect of the climate has any effect on taste. Possibly a good idea to search for local seed catalogues online and see what varieties are available and if there are pictures of size.
