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? 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

What are the pros? Easy to grow, pretty

What are the cons? Flavor, thick skins

Review:

Each year I trial a couple of new tomato varieties, and purchased this seed based on the many good reviews. This variety didn't meet my standards as a keeper, so I won't be growing them again. These were easy to grow, and pretty in the garden, although much attention needed to be paid to staking. However, I was not a fan of the bland flavor for fresh eating, and the skins were very thick and unpleasant on the tongue. The thick skins and lobes also made these difficult to blanch and peel for canning, and the flesh didn't hold up well, turning to mush in the jars. I'll be sticking to my San Remo tomatoes for canning and cooking.

Review:

I live in NE Texas, Zone 8a. I grew these this year for the first time. They are a tasty little tomato that I like to eat fresh or in salads. They took a little time to get started this year, a lot of rain early in the spring, then summer really didn't get started until July& they are a warm weather tomato. They did okay through the hot temps of August and are right now producing lots of small 3 - 3 1/2" tomato's. Might make a good sauce if I can stop eating them with breakfast, lunch & dinner. Right now the 5 plants still have over 100 tomato's on them and are still flowering in mid-September. Mine look just like the photo and weigh 2.5 - 3.0 oz. I will be growing them again.

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.
