“Krishna’s Gujarat Village” sounds very much like an old variety with a new name…meaning that this variety has probably been passed around in Gujarat, India as a regional heirloom, but only recently was given a name by others, wishing to share the seeds, for identification purposes. A gentleman in our gardening forum (scientist, brewer, gardener, and backyard chicken farmer) donated seeds for this variety to our annual trade event in 2017. He wrote, “I have obtained a large packet of seed (several years old, several hundred seeds) with the following description from an acquaintance who obtained it from an Indian immigrant: ‘unknown landrace from a co-worker’s granny’s village in Gujarat. It had abundant 2-inch slightly lobed fruit, very flavorful and juicy – ideal for Indian recipes.’ Supposedly does very well in heat…I will call it: Krishna’s Gujarat Village.”
As far as I can tell, this is a determinate variety. The fruits match the description given, being a bit lobed and 2-3” across. They are red and oblate. The flavor is very assertive, with a juicy acid punch. I can definitely see this tomato being a star performer in the ethnic foods of India. It did perform well in hot and humid conditions.
