Ten Fingers of Naples Tomato

(Dix Doights de Naples) 75 days, determinate. A paste or canning type that produces huge yields of elongated, pointed fruits reaching 5-6 inches in length, weighing to 3 ounces. Fruits are produced in bunches, giving rise to the fanciful comparison to hands! The flavor is much superior to many modern types, being sweet and rich. This fine variety is from Naples, Italy.

What are the pros? Good producer

What are the cons? Fungal damage

Review:

Love the thick flesh on these tomatoes. More dry than other varieties. Makes a great ketchup but is sweet enough to eat raw. I let my tomatoes grow wild this year, my Arkansas traveler tomatoes resisted fungal infection best (as usual) these guys didn't fend off as well, however next year with better care I believe they will do great. Canned over 100 quarts of tomatoes this year thanks to these guys. In going to plant a big group next year, maybe 50 plants. Very happy with the flavor and is as pretty as red lipstick. A beautiful heirloom. And I did get a great harvest even with a bit of fungal damage.

What are the pros? None

What are the cons? Highly susceptible to BER

Review:

Had good luck with San Marzanos last year and heard these were really good, so I thought I would give them a shot this year. Have had no luck whatsoever with these. Seems fairly easy to grow, lots of fruit setting but nearly all of it has Blossom End Rot. Regular watering schedule, have added calcium supplement, even tested soil for possible high nitrogen content, still can't beat BER on these. Other tomato varieties have been flawless this year, will be pulling the plant this week and going back to San Marzano next year. I might try these again, but it will be a season or two before I do.

Review:

2016 was our first year growing these and we all said it has to be a staple from now on. I grew several different varieties of tomatoes but the 10 Fingers grew like crazy. I caged them in 5 foot tall cages that they outgrew and our many children (me, too!) snacked on them freely fresh from the garden all summer but I still brought into the house 250 lbs. of tomatoes that we made sauce out of. Every day we harvested pounds and pounds of tomatoes from the garden and ate our fill all summer and fall and have over 200 qts. of sauce canned. We loved these tomatoes!

What are the pros? *Prolific*, Thick walled

Review:

The yields this tomato put out were ridiculous! The walls of the fruit are much thicker than the Roma and San Marzano varieties I've grown other years and makes for an especially thick and delicious sauce. Unlike other sauce varieties, we've eaten these fresh in salads with basil and balsamic - the flavor stands up similar to slicing varieties. Despite being bush variety, these plants grew to be monsters in the garden (5 feet!). I'd recommend sizable caging/support structures for them. These were started indoors in March and planted outside in mid-May. By end of June we had picked our first few tomatoes. By mid-July we were getting a full harvest basket every other day off of four plants.We had no problems with blossom end rot, but bone meal was added to our patch last fall. One of our other varieties was hit by blight pretty hard, and while these plants had a few affected leaves, they quickly recovered when drier weather came around and are overall very healthy.

What are the pros? Plentiful fruit set.

What are the cons? Blossom end rot susceptability

Review:

Despite an epic year for tomates, Five Fingers started out great, grew big, set lots of fruit and then fizzled out with blossom end rot that set in on about 90% of the tomatoes while still green. Several other varieties in the same garden were unphased. The few that made it were great, but this variety is not worth planting again.
