Hillbilly Heirloom Tomato Plants

Solanum lycopersicum


Tomato, flowering plant of the nightshade family. It is cultivated extensively for its edible fruits with a wide range of rich flavors. Tomatoes are labelled as vegetables for nutritional purposes. It contains vitamin C and phytochemical lycopene.


This tomato plant was found in a raise bed garden in my backyard with exposure to plenty of sunlight, water, and rich soil.


Tomato plants are deep rooted and require a healthy balance of nutrients and water.

Hi and welcome to the project. Project Noah is a website for wildlife and, as such, we don't accept posts of pets, domestic or captive animals, potted or garden plants, or fruit or vegetables 'off' the plant. Subjects should be in their 'natural' environment. We also need to believe there is a reasonable chance of identifying the subject, preferably to species level. Therefore photos need to be reasonably clear and show identifying features. Please either modify this spotting to fit our guidelines or remove it and add another. Thanks in advance.
