Perfectly round, perfectly pink, blemish free, super shiny, very versatile, and with incredible and strong flavor, these saladette sized tomatoes cannot be easily overrated. Born in large trusses on semi-determinate bushes with superb fungal disease resistance, they will set fruit in very high and very low temperatures as well as in very dry soils, which gives them the ability to succeed in a diversity of environments. Djodah tomatoes have ancestry from heirloom tomatoes of the desert of the southwest as well as early tomatoes from the northern plains crossed with various wild tomato species, a broad genetic background for sure! They are flavorful and beautiful on a good year, but on a bad year you will see their true excellence shine, as winds, heat, cold, dry spells, and disease can’t keep Djodah from producing. “Djodah” are little people in Onodowaga stories, very similar to gnomes, they are round and spritely, like these tomatoes which bear their name.
