Superb Italian paste and canning tomato. Also delicious sliced for salads and sandwiches! Heavy producer.
An absolutely excellent heirloom tomato—firm, meaty, 3" oblong fruits with few seeds, on compact vines that are very productive. As a determinate type, most of the fruits ripen at the same time, which makes this tomato a good choice for canning. In areas with a long growing season, a second planting will double your harvest!
Variety Info3" x 1 ½" oblong, red fruits with few seeds.
