Solanum lycopersicum

Semi-determinate. Ole!  This irresistible firey red tomato suits its name and is an excellent choice for desert climates or drier gardens.  Born and bred in Arizona, 'Flamenco' is a cross between Silvery Fir Tree for earliness and feathery foliage and Floridade for heat and disease resistance.  Keeps producing in the heat of the summer when other tomatoes stop.  There is some variability in the foliage and fruit size of this variety.  Vamos ya!
