The fluted, old Italian favorite that has been around since the early 19th century. Fruit is rather flattened and quite attractive with their deep ribbing. This variety is a standard in Italy for both fresh eating and preserving, and known for its intensely flavorful, deep red flesh. This variety has also become very popular with chefs in this country.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, beautiful color,

What are the cons? None

Review:

This is a fabulous tomato for sauces. Not too watery with plenty of “meat”. With olive oil it took on a creamy consistent y and adhere well to the pasta. Added some herbed olives to the sauce and it was excellent! Slices are beautiful too. Highly recommend!!!

Okay but not great

What are the pros? Appearance, yield

What are the cons? Size, disease susceptibility

Review:

I'd like to start by saying that this tomato is beautiful. That unique ruffled look is visible right from the first fruit set, and it's very entertaining to look at. And each plant produces a lot of fruits too, so you get to look at it plenty. The taste, while not particularly incredible, is decent too. That said, the size is disappointing. Many are only a couple ounces, particularly later in the season. The plants are also more prone to blight than most varieties I grow. This one is a fun novelty and the pros probably outweigh the cons, but I can't say I particularly recommend it on any basis other than just for the sake of having something different.

This tomato grew like gangbusters and ripened earlier than my other tomatoes; however, the taste was quite bland. I won't grow them again

What are the pros? Great for canning

What are the cons? None

Review:

Grew these from seed in 2018 and am doing it again in 2019. For me, these are best used for canning. Freeze them first, then thaw them out. When thawed, they pop right out of their skins! No peeling needed. Lots of meat and excellent flavor.
