Italian Giant

About Italian Giant

‘Italian Giant’ is a very old tomato variety, that was brought from Italy by a Jerome Nykiel, NY, USA in the 1920’s-1940’s. Indetermianate, very strong, regular leaf plants, that produce very good yield of big, 12-18 oz. beefsteak type fruit with a very good balanced, oldfashioned tomato flavor. Mid- to late season, about 85 days to maturity.
