70-75 days. Determinate. The Italian heirloom that is famous for sun drying. Small 1-to 2-oz, grape-shaped fruit is very dry and have few seeds. It has a rich tomato taste that is wonderful for sauces. Vines yield clusters of fruit in abundance, perfect for selling in fresh markets and making specialty products. We offer pure Italian seed.

Review:

I tried these for the first time last year and loved them. Planted again this year and did amazing again. I love the flavor off the vine, a bit tangier than regular red tomatoes, and love how productive they are. I include them in a mix of cherry tomatoes that I sell at the farmers market, including snow white, camp joy, beams yellow pear, fruit punch, brown berry, austins red pear, black cherry, I also include one hybrid, sungold. What a yummy mix. Highly recommend this cherry tomato

Review:

To increase the variety of plants in our respective gardens, the President of our garden club traded two of her excess plants (Principe Borghese and Barry's Crazy Cherry) for two of my excess plants (Golden Jubilee and Early Girl). I amended our soil with mushroom compost and aged cow manure; planted the tomatoes deep, and then covered with wood chips to keep the weeds down. Olympia had such a cold, wet, spring that all of the tomato plants were slow to get started. In June, they finally took off. Doing great... No pest problems. My wife and I ate them right off the vines or halved them into salads. Very pleased -- Principe Borghese and Barry's Crazy Cherry were both good additions to our garden.

What are the pros? Productive, prolific, YUM!

What are the cons? NONE!

Review:

If you like dried tomatoes, whether you sun dry, oven dry or dehydrate, there is simply no tomato in existence that can compare to Principe Borghese. Provide ample trellising for these prolific plants, as well as enough room the following year to plant at least twice as many the after you fall in love with them. They're so amazing and productive you'll be handing out jars to people you like for Christmas and hoarding the rest for yourself while trying to amass and invent recipes using dried tomatoes! Start them early and get them out in the garden as soon as you can because when they start cranking out fruit they will keep going until fall. If you only have room on a balcony for one pot, plant these. I haven't tried them hanging, but I would imagine they'd work well for that too. Seriously, they are the best drying tomato you can grow.

What are the pros? Garden candy!

What are the cons? None

Review:

Grew these from seed in 2018 and am doing it again for 2019 -- only doubled the number of plants this year! Started seeds indoors on heat mats and under grow lights; then added an oscillating fan after the seeds sprouted. Hardened off, then transplanted outdoors in early May. These are tomatoes are like "garden candy". Wonderful dried, but also terrific when skewered as shish-kabobs. Grilling really enhances the flavor.
