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? Flavor, easy to grow

What are the cons? Hard to stake

Review:

Going to grow this one again next year for sure. It's been a dry summer in the northeast this year and that may have something to do with the fantastic tomatoes I've had. These ones have been absolutely delicious as a raw salad every night and in omelettes every morning for the past 2 weeks. The production is average, but the flavor more than makes up for it.

What are the pros? Easy to Grow, Productive

What are the cons? Needs Lots of Stakes!

Review:

So far this one is doing the best out of all my heirloom large tomato plants. I have 16 fruits growing on one right now! Just a few days ago they were tiny; today I went out and the plants were bending over the tomato cage and dragging the tomato stake down with them! Had to tie up the stems like 4 times; have one pretty damaged stem, hopefully it will recover. Beautiful fluting so far, haven't had too many problems with this one, a little bit of leaf roll but not too bad.

What are the pros? lots of tomatoes, health plant

What are the cons? small size

Review:

They are very healthy plants that put out a ton of blooms. The only down side is they are rather small. The picture makes them look bigger than what they really are. But mine has put out at least 4-5 mega-blooms. I also recommend planting them with a egg under the roots. I did this with one of my mine (out of 3) and it is producing much better than all the others.

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Taste, production

Review:

I grew these hoping for the best canning tomato. I did not like these either for fresh eating or canning. They were incredibly dry and mealy. The taste wasn't great, and when I blanched for canning they just were sub par with all the other tomatoes.

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.
