The fluted, old Italian favorite that has been around since the early 19th century. Fruits are 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? Prolific

What are the cons? Missing the summer flavor

Review:

These are cute shaped, but grew together very easily. Ended up with siamese tomatoes. The flavor was just OK, but not a good slicer. TONS of seeds in this one. Not the beef steak flavor I was hoping for. Won't grow these again.

Review:

I was so excited to try out these little buggers. I planted them inside in late February, acclimated in April and planted in the ground in late May (we had a late frost in Utah). The took off right away and were the earliest of my 10 tomato varieties to produce. With that said, I won't grow them again. Part of gardening for me is the fun but these made me realize that I really do count on the yield and harvest. They are adorable and grow in clusters but the fruit is hard to peel, is all core-making it hard to slice, and just doesn't have much fruit.

Review:

This tomato out performed other varieties I grew in several ways They were the first flower and produce fruit. With higher than normal temps none of my tomatoes would ripen but when the temps dropped, they were the first to ripen. When the summer heat came they were the the last to show signs of suffering. The fruits have a deep rich color and equally rich flavor. I had no issues with irregular ripening. Their shape is endearing.

What are the pros? Beautiful tomato, flavor

What are the cons? Difficult to grow

Review:

Really nice tomato taste, was great in salad would make an awesome tomato sandwich. I did have difficulty growing in my climate; this tomato was grown in my yard as well as in a community garden and neither did well. The few I managed to pick were excellent in flavor and really beautiful looking. I may try growing again using different methods-if it is possible to grow well here it would be well worth the effort.

Review:

While these are a tasty tomato, they are not a very "efficient" tomato. Most were unusable as a slicing tomato, and much was lost when cutting up for canning as well. Green ones were wonderful for fried green tomatoes. We used these in our market garden. These were incredibly hard to sell at Farmers Markets, and hard to find ones that were "pretty" enough to sell there as well. I will never do them for a market garden again, but for a home garden I would grow them every year due to the flavor! We also found that these tomatoes had bad spots in the crevasses. As well as finding that many of them grew as a single tomato but ripened as two, i.e. half would be red and the other half would be hard and green.
