This variety produced small and mushy tomatoes for me. I was not impressed and will not plant again.

So-so flavor, in my opinion.

From Tomato Growers Supply: "This Italian heirloom variety from the Tuscany region produces loads of bright red tomatoes with terrific flavor. Tomatoes are typically about 8 ounces, but may be larger, with a smooth shape rather than the heavily ribbed shape typical of Costoluto Genovese. The flavor is high in sugar, but also high in acid, making for outstanding taste that's wonderful fresh or made into sauces. Indeterminate. 80 days."
