Solanum lycopersicum

Campari is a variety of Tomato which is a member of the Solanum family. Its botanical name is Solanum lycopersicum 'Campari'. 'Campari' is considered a patented hybrid cultivar.

Extremely disease resistant hybrid variety. Resists 2 races of verticilium and 2 races of fusarium. Also resists late blight. Grows ok with indoor lighting levels.

Although these are hybrid, when grown out from seed, there is a high percentage of plants that come true-to-type. Plus, there is a professional tomato researcher currently working on dehybridizing this hybrid, so as to create a stable OP version of it. His project is currently at F5… Only about 3 more generations to go! :)

This variety is an Fruit that typically grows as an Annual, which is defined as a plant that matures and completes its lifecycle over the course of a single year. Campari is known for growing to a height of approximately 1.50 metres (4.88 feet).
