ANGEL, Yeny et al. Tomato “Poncho negro”: History and redemption of culture forgotten. Idesia [online]. 2016, vol.34, n.5, pp.65-69.  Epub Oct 30, 2016. ISSN 0718-3429.

The "PonchoNegro" tomato was introduced to the Valley of Lluta more than 40years ago from Cochabamba (Bolivia). Recognized for its special features, she had a promising boom, however, because of its short postharvest life was displaced by new hybrid varieties introduced to the regional market. At his impending loss, it has been proposed to work on his recovery and revaluation, seeking to strengthen its development, while, keep it as a feasible plant genetic resource to use as diversification and incorporate a group of crops that tolerate the impending climate change and its effects on crop production in arid and semi-arid areas of the different regions of the world.

Keywords : Lluta Valley; plant genetic resource; "Poncho Negro" Tomato.
