Solanum lycopersicon

50 seeds/pack   |   85 days   |   Heirloom

Dating back to the early 19th century this tomato has long been a favorite in Italy for fresh eating and widely known for superb sauces and juice. The high acid content off set with a deep sweet tomato flavor gives this odd looking heirloom high marks in the old and new world alike. We were astounded by the prolific nature of this knobby lobed tomato. Fruit set began early and did not stop until the frost was upon us. Even through the hot northern California weather we continued to get fruits. The high seed content also makes this variety a seed savers dream.
