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.

Review:

I grew this tomato for the first time in 2013 and I just adore it. While not my favorite heirloom for a BLT, we ate them fresh on a plate with a bit of salt and olive oil and we canned the rest primarily mixed with black tomato types-which has made excellent soups all winter! A new favorite. I will continue to grow it.

What are the pros? Preserves wonderfully

What are the cons? Fresh Eating

Review:

I saw someone's review say they prefer this tomato for fresh eating. I'm glad they enjoy the fresh flavor. As a chef, I much preferred these hard-to-find beauties cooked. I predominantly use these for home use-- canning juice and sauces. The plants just keep producing. A few plants gave me over 100 quarts, and I gave away bushels to neighbors and friends. They are shockingly full flavored. Not overly sweet, or acidic, but flavorful. A very 'tomatoy' flavor. Deep and complex. They reduce wonderfully for a thick, rich sauce. Minimal processing required for juice or soup. Skins can be tough depending on growing conditions, but easy enough to concasse. Fresh, they tend to have a mealy texture. If you like to cook or can, or looking for a paste tomato alternative, I highly recommend this one.

Review:

I live 53 degrees north (sub-boreal)and a tomato, if not in a greenhouse, will at best produce green fruit. The Costoluto, in contrast to most other varieties I have tried, will ripen beautifully if pulled at the first frost and hung in a warm place. Last year I had fantastic firm, flavourful fruit right through until mid November from a half dozen volunteers that came up in my patio. The Costoluto will remain an anchor in my garden.

What are the pros? Easy grow, plentiful

What are the cons? hard to peel, lots of seeds

Review:

These tomatoes were easy to grow. There color and taste was fantastic. I did can them, but it was a LOT of trouble. Peeling was difficult and the amount of seeds was ridiculous. I would not recommend this for canning, but would recommend it for fresh eating. If fresh eating them it will not take many plants to feed folks. They produce a lot.
