Ovita tomato

Posted by Radishrain Radishrain
This is one of the best-tasting tomatoes I've ever had, and probably the most complex in flavor. It's amazing, but not sweet. It's a small tomato, or a large cherry. It's ruffled like a stuffing tomato, but my fruits weren't hollow (although I understand the variety is known to be kind of hollow at least sometimes).

I grew this in 2016, in a container.

I'm growing two plants, this year. One, from seeds I saved in 2016, and another from the original packet. Here they are! These pictures were taken on 27 May 2020.

Re: Ovita tomato

The next time I grew it, I had it in the ground with black plastic. It was a lot more prolific, but tasted totally different. I preferred it the frist year, but it might have been great in sauce the second year.
