Santorini

About Santorini

From Greece. Original seed was collected in 1996 by Sonja Steifel on the island of Santorini in Greece where it was commercially grown. First offered in the Seed Savers 1996 Yearbook by William Woys Weaver of Paoli, PA. Seeds were sent to Gary Ibsen of TomatoFest by George Venieris owner of Evmenia Luxury Cave Villa in Caldera Santorini who shared that Santorini tomatoes are historically grown without watering. Tall, indeterminate, regular leaf plants produce 1-2 oz., small, flattened, oblate, slightly ribbed, bright-red fruits with very good, slightly-acidic flavors. This is a very good canning or market tomato.
