Determinate 70-75 days 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? Very tasty
What are the cons? Not determinate!
These are fabulous. I have around 20 of these plants growing this year. We could not get enough of them last year. I have many large clusters of fruit. These are extremely vigorous and I do not believe they are truly determinate. My plants are still growing at 6' tall and blooming & setting new fruit.
I started harvesting ones and twos in early July and am now getting into the bigger harvests. I have harvested 3# of these this week... with tons more to come.
These went into the ground mid-April, in a poly covered tunnel with a frost blanket to guard against our low overnight temps.
We love these dried with the heirloom yellow pear tomatoes to put on pizzas, in sauces, etc.
I've had very strong germination with these seeds, with no supplemental heat under them for germination. I germinate at room temp in my home under fluorescent lights.

What are the pros? Amazing flavor
What are the cons? none
I didn't have a huge yield of these, unfortunately. I think i only ended up with one plant because some of my starts didn't make it. Its unfortunate because the flavor of the tomatoes I did get from that one little plant were so amazing. So good to eat raw and fresh. They tasted like a delicious homemade tomato soup. They were savory and didn't have any off flavors. When we would get a few, we would fight over them. Next time I will plant a whole bunch of these.

What are the pros? Most productive, delicious
What are the cons? None
This variety has been, by far, the most productive (and delicious) variety of the many I planted this year. I'm writing this New Year's Eve day, having just harvested 30 delicious fruits from my one plant this morning. I planted it for "sun-dried" (actually oven-dried) tomatoes, but they are delicious in salads or out of hand as well. Perfect.

What are the pros? Hearty and plump
What are the cons? Hit and miss with plants.
I'll be planting these again. A few plants were just adequate and the other half of the plants went nuts! They ended up overflowing the growing areas and filling basket after basket upon picking. The sundried tomatoes are so tasty-- like candy!

What are the pros? prolific
This tomato is a standby for me, but I (as others) would dispute the label "determinate". This was my first tomato at the market (mid June) and they are still producing, albeit slowly, in mid November. The plants are a good 6 1/2 feet tall. It just doesn't jibe with "determinate" in my mind.
Customers love it. I don't know of any who dry it, but I have one gentleman who regularly makes soup out of his. Most eat them fresh or use them for salads. Being a gardener, I eat mine off the vine. (I don't want to be out of character!)
I would recommend d this tomato to anyone living in the high desert.
