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.

My favorite tomatoes

What are the pros? Flavor. Heat tolerant. Big siz

What are the cons? None

Review:

This is my favorite tomato. The flavor is the best, they are large and meaty, good for canning and sauce. Our summers are very warm here, they handle the heat well with every other day watering and mulch. BIG plants, they can top 6-7 feet all around. Deeply wrinkled, so if you want standard round slices, go elsewhere. Have never had an insect or disease issue with them in 6 years. Because they get so big, you will need to keep them in check and prune occasionally.

What are the pros? Prolific

What are the cons? Not good as a slicer

Review:

Yes, thick skin, fluted shape, and high acid . very hard to peel. That being said, we love this productive little heirloom for canning ! I use a hand cranked food mill (Weston Co.) that removes skin and seeds ,leaving me a clean product to process. Very easy ! The high acid and deep red color make this tomato my new favorite for tomato canning projects. The two of us won't be eating any store bought tomato products for the next year, and the season is not over. 5 plants, still loaded at this date.Just days away from Labor Day. I Recommend topping these indeterminates at 6 ft. Treated qnce with neem, two light dustings with seven . No curl, or blight. No insect damage.

Best tasting tomato

What are the pros? tomato flavor

What are the cons? difficult to process

Review:

This is our 2nd year on this tomato. We love the flavor but because of its undulations it is difficult to peel and prep for canning or freezing. Also it does not always have nice clean slices for a caprese salad so presentation is not as graceful as some of the slicing tomatoes. Also if my tomatoes show signs of calcium deficit these are always the first ones to show the dark patch on the bottom.

What are the pros? Pretty

What are the cons? None

Review:

I've grown these twice and loved them both times. This is a bad tomato year here, but these pretty tomatoes don't seem to know that. I know these are considered cooking tomatoes, but they are very flavorful, and one of my favorites to eat right there in the garden.

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!!!
