Solanum centrale – Bush Tomato (seed)
Solanum centrale is native to inland areas of Australia and was a much relished food of Aborigines. The ripe fruit has a delicious sun-dried tomato flavour and can be used in any dishes where tomatoes are used. Also called Desert Raisin or Desert Tomato.
Care and Cultivation of Solanum centrale
Solanum centrale seeds have a much greater germination rate when treated with smoke water (this treatment is highly recommended, we sell it here).
Plant just under the surface of a well drained seed raising mix in full sun. Keep moist until germination. Solanum centrale prefers a loam/gravel well drained soil. Fast growing and hardy, Solanum centrale likes a full sun position and is tolerant of extremely dry conditions once established. Sends up suckers over time; often the main plant will die back and the new shoots will pop up a short distance away.
