Ten Fingers of Naples Tomato

(Dix Doights de Naples) 75 days. Determinate. A paste or canning type that produces huge yields of elongated, pointed fruit reaching 5-6 inches in length, weighing to 3 ounces. Fruits are produced in bunches, giving rise to fanciful comparison to hands! The flavor is much superior to many modern types, being sweet and rich. This fine variety is from Naples, Italy.

What are the pros? *Prolific*, Thick walled

What are the cons? None

Review:

The yields this tomato put out were ridiculous! The walls of the fruit are much thicker than the Roma and San Marzano varieties I've grown other years and makes for an especially thick and delicious sauce. Unlike other sauce varieties, we've eaten these fresh in salads with basil and balsamic - the flavor stands up similar to slicing varieties. Despite being bush variety, these plants grew to be monsters in the garden (5 feet!). I'd recommend sizable caging/support structures for them. These were started indoors in March and planted outside in mid-May. By end of June we had picked our first few tomatoes. By mid-July we were getting a full harvest basket every other day off of four plants.We had no problems with blossom end rot, but bone meal was added to our patch last fall. One of our other varieties was hit by blight pretty hard, and while these plants had a few affected leaves, they quickly recovered when drier weather came around and are overall very healthy.

What are the pros? Plentiful fruit set.

What are the cons? Blossom end rot susceptability

Review:

Despite an epic year for tomates, Five Fingers started out great, grew big, set lots of fruit and then fizzled out with blossom end rot that set in on about 90% of the tomatoes while still green. Several other varieties in the same garden were unphased. The few that made it were great, but this variety is not worth planting again.

What are the pros? Determinate, perfect for sauce

What are the cons? none

Review:

Because I have had late blight in the past, it was recommended to me to plant with Epsom salts and non-fat dry milk in my planting holes, so I did. I have used Epsom salts to water night shades in the past with excellent results, so I'm not surprised. I also remembered to pick out the suckers this year. I gave our neighbor one of my plants from these seeds, and was surprised at the difference in growth that culture practices can make-ours were much larger and had a lot more fruit. We had no problem with any diseases or cracking. When we had rain, it was intense for a few days then none for a couple of weeks, which would be a great set up for cracking, but we had none. We had a bit of rain just as tomatoes started to ripen, and I expected to see blight, but we had none. INCREDIBLE flavor, best sauce tomatoes we've ever grown, all meat, very little juice inside. Also sweet and good just to eat. Epsom salts and non-fat dry milk, and you won't be disappointed in these tomatoes.

No black spot

What are the pros? Taste

What are the cons? non

Review:

The black spot is the result of lack of calcium or inconsistent watering. This can be solved by liming your soil or adding bone meal when planting. Some tomatoes just need more calcium.

Plants grew well, blossomed, and the fruit started. But, they didn't get very large, and had considerable blossom end rot. Disappointed, won't plant again.
