ITALIAN HEIRLOOM: Everything you would expect from a tomato revered by the Italians for it’s BIG TASTE. This was one of the favorites of the 2008 Carmel TomatoFest tomato tasting and winner of SSE’s (Seed Savers Exchange) 2012 Tomato Tasting
This all purpose Italian heirloom tomato is great for eating fresh, canning, or salsa. The fruit are easy to peel and have great taste. Italian Heirloom yields a load of 12-16 oz., beautiful, red, meaty, fat, pear-ish shaped, tomatoes that enjoy an abundance of rich, complex, sweet flavors that are well-balanced with good acidity. They are that good. Red tomatoes ideal for both slicing and sauce as they are very meaty and contain few seeds. Incredible flavor with just the right balance of acid and sweet. Early and productive for such a large variety
It was exciting to watch the gigantic solid fruit grow on these lovely plants. I can sum it up in one word-Outstanding! Highly recommended!
Ideal for slicing and canning—very little waste and easy to peel
