May be L. pimpinellifolium, large sprawling vines need caging or staking, very prolific production of 0.5-inch ivory yellow cherry tomatoes, very sweet with a distinctly different earthy, fruity flavor. While the flavor is not a particular favorite of mine, I took them to a tomato tasting party where they were a big hit and were voted the best flavored variety. Listed as “other color” variety (rather than a yellow variety) in past SSE Yearbooks; now in SSE Yearbook it is correctly listed as Tomato - other species.

History

  • A cluster of ripe "Coyote" tomatoes, still on the vine, was given to Craig LeHoullier by Maye Clement from Vera Cruz, Mexico, in 1990 during her visit to his display at the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society Harvest Festival. She related that it was a tomato that grew wild in Mexico (Craig's note: there is more to add, but I need to find the letter she sent to me). Due to the pale color, Craig mistakenly originally listed it in the SSE yearbook as Ivory Currant - but the true name, according to Maye, is indeed "Coyote".
  • Six commercial sources noted for 2004 in Garden Seed Inventory 6th edition.
