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? 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.

What are the pros? they look cute

What are the cons? not much meat to them

Review:

I like others found these tomatoes to have a very hard core and not much meat to them. By the time i cut out the core I was left with not much more than one tablespoon of tomato. The flavor was okay but I don't think i will plant these again because I don't want to waste my garden space for no more product I get to use.

What are the pros? It is cute

What are the cons? fungus issues/poor production

Review:

I was so excited about this plant. Unfortunately it was a disappointment to grow in Southeast Louisiana. The heat and humidity here kept CGT in constant fungus/disease battles. It was the first variety to be culled for sickness. I started out with lots of them but by mid season I had lost most of them. The survivors did not produce much probably because all of its energy is spent fighting off fungus. The tomatoes that I did get were beautiful little pumpkin looking shapes. The taste did not impress. It is kind of flat so it is awkward to use as a slicer. I think it would be better grown in a dry environment.

Missing the summer flavor

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.
