(Solanum lycopersicon) This oblong Thompson grape shaped tomato must have had its origins in Hawaii…( by the name). Komohana is a research station site for the University of Hawaii, but beyond that Joe does not have much historical information on the origin of this tomato. It does well in the hot humid tropics, and it should do well in the southern states or anywhere that tomatoes thrive. Reputed to be very productive. The small bush plant is said to get so loaded with fruit that it needs support. Fruits are small about ½ ounce in size.
