George Detsika’s Italian Red

About George Detsika’s Italian Red

‘George Detsika’s Italian Red’ is a very prolific family heirloom originated in Italy. It was grown by George Detsika’s for over 25 years. He received seeds from an old Italian man who had brought this variety from Italy. In 2014 Tracy Mathesius grew it and shared the seeds with many tomato gardeners via Tomatoville gardening forum. Beautiful, dark red colored hearts are big (18 oz./500g and more), have very intense, sweet, oldfashioned tomato flavor. Meaty and juicy flesh with very few seeds. Excellent for sauce. Indeterminate, regular leaf plants. Late, about 85 days to maturity.
