Mama Leone

About Mama Leone

An heirloom variety from Italy. Seeds were brought to the United State by a family of Italian immigrants and ended up at a nursery in New York state, who offered plants. First offered in the Seed Savers 2005 Yearbook by Nancy Kirch of Binghamton, New York, from a local nursery in New York state.
First introduced commercially in 2008 by Tomato Growers Supply and Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds . Indeterminate, regular leaf plants grow quite tall and need good support. Fruits are red and shaped like fat plums, 4-5 oz, with occasional fruit being ‘double’ up to 8 oz. Quite juicy to be a paste tomato, it is great fresh in salads. Very good flavor.
