70-75 days. Determinate. The Italian heirloom that is famous for sun drying. Small 1-2 oz. grape-shaped fruit are very dry and have few seeds. They have a rich tomato taste that is wonderful for sauces. Determinate vines yield clusters of fruit in abundance, perfect for selling in fresh markets and making specialty products. We offer pure Italian seed.

What are the pros? Robust plants, delicious!

What are the cons? None

Review:

This tomato is delicious & full of flavor, unlike some other reviews state. Maybe it is due to soil and growing conditions. I've grown this one 3 years now in southern middle TN and never had a problem with bland taste. The plants are huge, only stopping at 6 ft. because I continually prune it back! It grows wide and so full and dense, even with all the "sucker pruning" I do. They never stop producing until frost (late Oct), even after the other varieties have long been dead. I've only planted 1 plant (after the first year) because the constant yield is so heavy it is hard for me to pick fast enough. I planted these for drying, but they are so delicious they end up eaten before they can dry! I pull the plant up before frost, hang by roots in garage, and continue picking the fresh tomatoes for at least 2 weeks! I can't imagine planting a garden without this tomato!

What are the pros? Lots of fruit

What are the cons? Not much taste

Review:

These tomatoes were good for us here in Oregon. They just kept coming and coming! A strong growing plant that gave pretty clusters of five or six tomatoes, a dozen per plant. I dehydrated them and we'll see how that goes, but they were only of average taste off the vine. I'll definitely plant these again, with more compost next year. Oh, and my seed was at least four years old, I was really just sprouting them as an experiment but then they actually grew so I set them out.

What are the pros? Blooms set in heat

What are the cons? None

Review:

2015 has been a miserable year for gardeners in Oklahoma. Too much rain all at once (double the usual yearly amount), then weeks of very hot and dry. My point is this is the only variety of tomato that is consistently producing for me this year. The tomatoes are small but quite tasty. They do tend to fall off the vine shortly before fully ripening, so I just pick them shortly before that. That way the birds don't mess with them either. The growth habit sure seems indeterminate to me. It's well over 6' and still growing (mid August). I'll certainly be planting this variety again.

What are the pros? Pretty and prolific

What are the cons? No flavor

Review:

Easy to grow and very prolific. Lots of pretty bright-red tomatoes. I will not grow them again because they did not have enough flavor. Black Cherry and Sungold taste a lot better.

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Falls off vine quickly

Review:

Planted this early in a high tunnel and had heavy production, which lasted well into September. Some of the fruit fell from the vine before getting to full growth, which caused a bit of an issue with flies. Great for the skillet and making sauces.
