Italian Heirloom

It’s name says it. A real classic heirloom from Italy. Indeterminate, regular leaf plants produce HUGE amounts of 1-2 lb., beautiful, red, meaty, fat, slightly pear-shaped, tomatoes that enjoy an abundance of rich, complex, and sweet flavors that are well-balanced with good acidity.
Everything you would expect from a tomato revered by the Italians for it’s BIG TASTE. This was one of the “Top 3 Best Tomatoes” of the 2008 Carmel TomatoFest tomato tasting. A good choice for cooking, eating fresh or canning.
