‘Goldman’s Italian-American’ was de-hybridized from an Italian variety. First offered in the Seed Savers 2008 Yearbook by Amy Goldman of Rhinebeck, New York. Originally found at a roadside stand in Cernobbio, Italy by Amy Goldman and named after her father’s grocery store in Brooklyn. Tall indeterminate, regular leaf plant produces 10-20 oz., large, pinkish-red fruits that are beautifully shaped like ruffled bottom-heavy pears. Pink flesh, clear skin. Firm meaty flesh with little juice. Beautiful slices. Wonderful taste, more sweet than acidic. Late maturing (about 85 days from transplant). In Amy’s book, she says…”voluptuous, red-ribbed, and very heavy in the hips-makes sauce as thick and rich as any tomato I’ve ever grown.”
