‘Datterini Nero’ is one of the Italian-originated ‘Datterini’ tomato series. Those tomatoes are often used in Italy for preserving and canning. There are available red, yellow, brown, and green when ripe strains of Daterini tomatoes. The name ‘Datterini’ means ‘little dates’ in Italian. Sometimes they are also listed as ‘Datterino’, which is the singular form of the name. Small (0.7 oz./20g), dark purple-brown, elongated, plum-shaped fruits have a high acidity, which ripens into a flavorful sweetness with a higher sugar level than most other tomatoes. The small tomatoes can be sliced and used fresh in colorful summer salads, but they are also great for pizza topping, boiled into soups, or dried and stored in flavored oils. Indeterminate, regular leaf plants with very good yield. Midseason, 75 days from transplant.
