Indistinguishable from roma except for a little smaller on average. But as discussed above my yields seem to be much higher. I only have two romas and 12 napolis so its hare to make any conclusive statements. I do have a few low yeilding napoli's and they are certianly not free from F. Wilt if I know how to identify it.
