Oridoko tomato (today's sample record)

Plural: Oridoko tomatoes

Language: English

Description: A medium-sized Japanese tomato closely related to the Momotaro. Fruits are well sized, weighing several ounces, and having a pretty pink tint to their bright red flesh. Flavour is excellent, similar to the popular Momotaro. I have seen references to another Japanese tomato called Odoriko. One of these is wrong, but searches on the web show a similar number (very few) of hits under both names. I suspect that this difference will persist though I am pretty certain they are the same tomato.
