I really liked this variety. It is an oxheart shaped red tomato that was relatively productive. The flavor was very good and it seemed to be a good all purpose tomato because I could use it for both a slicer and as a sauce tomato. It was not as flavorful as Julia Child was but was equivelent in taste thought different from brandywine OTV. It will grow again in my garden probably for many years. It may become my go to tomato.

An heirloom from Italy. Plants are loaded with fruits weighing over a pound. One of the most productive varieties we have grown. Excellent full tomato flavor. Easy to peel, ideal for slicing and canning, very little waste. Indeterminate, 70-80 days from transplant.
