Italian Heirloom Tomato Plant : It's name says it. A real classic heirloom from Italy. This plant produces tomato plants that yield an load of 12-16 oz., beautiful, red, meaty, fat, slightly pear-shaped, tomatoes that enjoy an abundance of rich, complex, sweet flavors that are well-balanced with good acidity. 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. A good choice for cooking, eating fresh or canning.
