The fluted, old Italian favorite that has been around since the early 19th century. Fruit are rather flattened and quite attractive with their deep ribbing. This variety is a standard in Italy for both fresh eating and preserving; known for its intensely flavorful, deep red flesh. This variety has also became very popular with chefs in this country.

What are the pros? pretty , great taste

What are the cons? low production small tomates

Review:

I have grown this tomato for 2 years and I have been quite disappointed in the production. They are on the small side at about 3-5 oz. They are juicy have an excellent flavor and are very pretty. They ripen fairly early at about 75-85 days from transplanting. My vines got to be very large at about 8-10 feet tall, bushy and hard to contain in my 2ft x2ft x8ft cages. I won't be growing this one again.

Review:

We grew these the summer of 2014. They were a wonderfully flavorful tomato whether we ate them raw or canned. In fact, canned has given me the best sauces ever. We are definitely planting these again.

Review:

I gave this tomato a try last year (summer 2014) and it was by far our favorite tomato! they were beautifully fluted, perfectly red and tasted wonderful. we preferred them fresh with a little salt - none of them lasted to can as I only planted two plants - I will be planting much more of these this year!

Review:

This tomato was an experiment for me since I've been told time and again that growing heirloom tomatoes in the desert is impossible. It's not impossible at all. I grew two plants of this in pots as an experiment. Not only did they grow very well, they gave me enough fruit to make sauce! I planted the seedlings out in mid March and had fruit in late May/Early June. They stopped producing during our hot summers which I expected as pollen dies in such high heat. Now that the temperatures have dropped for the fall and the second growing season has started they are flowering again, so I expect to get more tomatoes from them! I would not call these early maturing, more of a mid-season tomato, so if you live where seasons are super short this might not be for you. If you do grow them in the desert, cover them with a light filtering screen for the hot summer to preserve the plants. I used a thin gossamer curtain I found on clearance at a store.

What are the pros? Prolific, very pretty

What are the cons? bland, watery

Review:

Out of my medium-large tomatoes, this has been the most prolific. The fruits are uniform, blemish free, and beautiful. However I was a little disappointed with the flavor - it's not the most flavorful tomato I've grown and it's very watery.
