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? 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.

What are the pros? prolific plant

What are the cons? description says determinate

Review:

Planted these on a whim. Got a little carried away in the spring after a long winter. Seeds sprouted ok, withstood me almost killing them a few times. Early in the season there were lots of tomatoes, and they were ripe before my siberian tomatoes. I wasn't so nuts about them at the beginning but now I can't get enough. The plants keep on growing and putting out more tomatoes, I bet they'll go on till the first frost. All the tomato plants at the community garden are dead from blight except for these. It's amazing, they keep on growing and outgrowing the blight. Maybe it's beginners luck but I'll definitely be planting these next year. Good for salads, drying, canning, making sauce. Just not big enough for BLTS!

Review:

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.
