Flamenco

  • TS340
  • Solanum lycopersicum. An excellent open-pollinated tomato for the Southwest. Flamenco is a cross between Silvery Fir Tree for earliness and feathery foliage and Floridade for heat and disease resistance. The result is a semi-determinate 4' bush loaded with highly flavored 2", red round fruits. Nice acid/sweet balance and great flavor. Continues to produce in hot weather when others stop. Performed very well in our 2012 trials in both Tucson and Patagonia, Arizona. (Note: We have noticed that there may be some instability in this cross, as foliage sometimes has the look of one or the other parent varieties). Not from our Seed Bank Collection, but your purchase supports our conservation mission.

    • Still a staff and customer favorite!
    • Approx. 0.1g/25 seeds per packet.
  • $3.95

Great tomato for hot weather!

I grew these tomatoes in my garden for the first time this year and they did really well in our drought conditions and high temperatures. All other tomato plants died off or would not set fruit, but the Flamenco thrived and produced delicious tomatoes. I will definitely grow them every year!

Not much success

Very few seeds sprouted. In fact most of my order was a bust this time.

Delicate

Out of the 5 varieties of tomatoes I planted this year Flamenco is the only one not thriving. It has been a struggle to keep these plants alive and they aren't growing nearly as fast as the others. Every little bit of stress (wind, a few degrees cooler, a few degrees warmer, soil a little dryer but not dry) and they wild and the leaf ends die back. I don't know if they'll eventually start growing and survive long enough to produce. So far these are the weakest tomatoes I've ever grown.
