red oblate tomato, indet. regular leaf

Seed source:

Helmut Pummer, Austria

Year grown: 2011

Location: Quitzdorf am See, Germany


PA SE P

The best performance for the year 2011 in terms of drought tolerance, production, and plant vigor. Formidable against the "stinkbugs". This tomato gets its name from the place of its origin, the Punta Banda peninsula in Baja Mexico. Some say it makes a good snacking or salad tomato, and although that may be the case, Punta Banda excels at paste making. There is virtually no seed cavity in this tomato! No juice! Punta Banda is technically a semi-determinate that will fruit until late summer. The fruit is high in lycopene and the flavor is to par with many reds, easily better tasting than San Marzano or Amish Paste. Will not perform well in wet soils or cold weather.
