History

  • This odd tomato was requested from the USDA, via GRIN, in 1995 by Craig LeHoullier. No background information appears to be available. Craig has grown it twice, both times with unusual results noted above - the regular leaf but rugose leaves curl severely and the plant looks very unhappy, though it does produce a good crop of smallish round orange fruit. It is of greatest value as a breeding partner or for its curiosity value, perhaps.
  • United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), PI 645178. . Donated to the USDA in 1963 from Iowa, USA. NSL 27967.
