Mandurang Moon Tomato
Certified Organic Seed
Pale glowing orbs that defy every terrestrial challenge.
The Dwarf Tomato Project, a cooperative plant breeding venture between growers in the United States and Australia, has produced loads of new varieties in recent years. We adore this one for its small, tasty, gorgeously pale-colored fruit and the plants’ solid stature and disease resistance. Although the fruit are lunar white, “Mandurang,” a town in Australia, means “Black Cicada” in the indigenous language of the area. They are equally enjoyable under the constellations of either hemisphere.
