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? All meat high yeild

What are the cons? Plant won't die.

Review:

Don't be fooled by the slow cold frame growth rate as they will be first to produce. Early harvest is small in size with vine and tomatoes growing in size as season progresses. They ripen fast off the vine, so pick red and firm if your going to can up to four days out. Tender skins require a one level transport from field to kitchen to keep them from getting crushed if you have lots to transport. Does well in hard dry soil so long as you portion water consistent every day in hot weather to prevent blistering for healthy tomatoes you will be proud to give away. Once going they won't die. Plants will die with up to 10 mature tomatoes on vine not for consumption as late season weather can black spot the skins. I plant with black plastic and (5% of recommended solution of Miracle Grow per gallon of water) every day. This year I will try a black netting to shade plants on hottest days of the year and to repel soaker storms that can flood roots and blemish skins.

Review:

Production is great on this tomato and it's easy to grow. The tomatoes just didn't have much flavor. I grew several plants and they all tasted the same. Will stick to Carbon next year (best tasting tomato ever).

What are the pros? great producer, nice size

What are the cons? hard to use as eating tomatoe

Review:

Love the flavor, taste and production of this tomato. I had 10 plants out and they all were cage busters in with really heavy production from Aug through Oct. The family loved the taste and juice, the only complaint being the core / ribs. Makes it hard to slice up for eating and when canning the skin was hard to remove between the lobes. Overall, loved this tomato and would grow again just for a couple plants and not expect it to be a great canning variety
