TN MA T

Small currant sized 1/2" red fruit on vigorous indet. regular leaf plants. Smallish plant sends out long vines that must be controlled. Early-mid season and somewhat cold tolerant as mine have always lasted thru first soft frosts. They have a strong tendency to reseed themselves and will produce lots of "volunteers" the following year.

History

  • Originated from Mexico where it grows wild, L. esculentum var. cerasiforme;
  • Teresa Arellanos de Mena, a friend of Maine Ag. Faculty's Dr. Laura Merrick and Dr. Matt Liebman, brought seed to Maine from her family in Hidalgo in Eastern Mexico.
  • Readily self-seeds to provide volunteers for the next year.
  • Terroir Seeds has begun (in 2009) offering a golden-yellow, almost transluscent variant "Matt's Wild Cherry Gold" which is not yet stabilized.
