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 thought I had done something wrong re: BER -- but glad to find others that suffered similarly! Also grew Cour di Bue, also suffered BER. I guess these heirlooms need MORE calcium than normal! I will plant again next year, but in addition to favorite standbys Amish Paste and Opalka!

Review:

I gave this tom a second chance this year. This time I allowed only one leader on a string. I also added bone meal, epsom salt, compost, aspirin, fish head in the hoe before planting. It gave me a lot of fruits with less acidity than last year's crop. Fruit did not mind the 100 degree heat and ripen anyway. It is still producing fruits even when Paul Robeson has quit on me . Grew more than 7 feet . Highly recommended!!!

What are the pros? Easy germination

What are the cons? BER prone

Review:

I planted several variety of tomatoes last year and together with Martino Roma, they were hardy in my region. This is a huge plant. But I would say, about 50% of the fruit has BER. The taste was more acidic. I would like to try this plant again.

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.
