Tomato - Jitomate Bulito (SD)
Approximately 250-380 seeds per gram.
The Jitomate Bulito is a relatively rare, open pollinated, paste tomato variety from Mexico. It is a very productive determinate/semi determinate plant that grows well with or without staking and tying. It produces thick, deep red, 5-7 cm (2-3”) long fruit that is oval shaped with a slightly pointed end. A good keeper when picked green to orange to red. The texture is meaty and dry; a very flavorful tasting, rich tomato and a great one for making salsa and sauces. Jitomate Bulito is a fairly low maintenance plant, and quite easy to grow. A late season tomato variety (85-95) days.
Open pollinated-untreated seeds. Harvest fruit when they are the desired size, colour and firmness. In general, perfectly ripe tomatoes show deep color but still feel firm when gently squeezed. Tomatoes do continue to ripen after being picked. Gently grab and twist until the tomato pulls free from the stem, or use a pair of clippers. Cut stems close to fruits. Always store picked tomatoes at room temperature indoors, or in a shady place outside. Never refrigerate tomatoes, because temperatures below 12.8° C (55° F) cause flavor compounds to break down.
