Semi-Determinate

Heirloom from Italy. A preferred standard with Italian farmers. Compact and prolific producer of bright-red, slim, 2-3 inch, plum-type, fruit over a long season. A paste tomato with pointy end, heavy walls and little juice, so it’s great for a delicious tomato sauce. Crack resistant. Many find this variety better tasting than Roma.

These tomato starts will be in 4” pots and will be available for local pickup in mid to late May.
