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.
