About Patanara

‘Patanara’ is a very old Italian heirloom, traditionally grown on the slopes of Mountain Vesuvius. It is an ecotype* of the well-known ‘Pomodorino del Piennolo del Vesuvio’**.
Indeterminate plant produces red, plum-shaped fruits with a pointed end and thick skin weighing 0.7-0.9oz./20-25g. Very firm flesh with a pleasantly sweet, well-balanced flavor. After harvesting, this variety keeps well and can be stored hanging in clusters or on trays for up to 6-9 months. Excellent for Italian cuisine. About 75-80 days to maturity.

*Another ecotype of ‘Pomodorino del Piennolo del Vesuvio’ is known by the names ‘Fiaschella’, ‘Lampadina’, ‘Principe Borghese’, and ‘Re Umberto’.
**The name of this variety was entered into the Register of Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) and Protected Geographical Indications on December 11, 2009, by the European Union Commission Regulation No 1238/2009.
