80 days. Deeply ribbed, intensely red fruit reaches up to 5 ounces. Firm, solid flesh and somewhat hollow seed cavity make this a star for stuffing or paste, but the ribbing also gives slices a scalloped appearance which is lovely on a plate. First grown in this country by Ann Fuller of Mitchell, Indiana, who received seed from a Sicilian man in 1987. Richly flavored, just as the Italians like their tomatoes, and stunningly beautiful!

Review:

Super prolific producer, disease resistant . Plants thrived in the hot and humid Indiana summer weather, we also had a frost last night and plants made it through fine. Great for stuffing, sauce and salsa. I also use them for fried green tomato rings, which are stunning due to the scalloped shape of the fruit. Will definitely grow again.

What are the pros? Extremely productive

What are the cons? None

Review:

Grew these babies in my greenhouse in the hydroponic bucket system. Highly productive small to medium size tomato that made some of the BEST spaghetti sauce ever!!! I plan to grow these every year now for one of my sauce tomatoes. More productive and better flavored than Amish paste tomatoes in my area.

Review:

Grew these in Toronto Ontario on a balcony in 5gl buckets. Hot full sun, water once a day, twice on heatwaves. All items I grow are in containers and all my reviews are bias towards that. Grew fantastic, great tomato smell, look, taste and feel. Fruit where compact and rippled, could use for stuffing, sandwiches, sauces or just fresh with salt n pepper. Did not fall off plant till I picked them, little to no cracking, bruising, rotting or pests. In my top 5 for medium sized tomatoes. classic tomato flavor and not to acidic like some are.

What are the pros? Flavor, yields

What are the cons? Removing seed to process

Review:

Very productive indeterminate. Intense flavor. My experience is that these are best seeded prior to processing to reduce water content. Before processing it is best to cut this tomato in half laterally. After cutting in half use your thumb to push out the seeds. After the fruit is seeded these cook down nicely and the halves can be dried for great dried tomatoes. The fruits are usually small to medium, typically fit into your palm. However the plants produce loads of fruit(more than I have ever experienced).

Review:

I grew these a few years back and have continued to do so ever since. These are EASY to take care of. In fact, I FORGOT ABOUT THEM the first year and thought they were marigolds in my garden! When I went out to that bed, there were HUNDREDS of tomatoes on my vines. Excellent-tasting, these little beauties are fabulous for canning tomato sauce and paste. We combined these with Old Italian Tomato variety and it was Heaven on top of our homemade pasta. We noticed that these and Alma Paprika Peppers look almost identical when you pick them! Same size and same shape. My husband frequently mixed up the two when I'd harvested both at the same time! Made for some interesting recipes! ;) Alma Paprika Peppers, BTW, are AMAZING and one of my favorite little, sweet red peppers!
