Italian Heirloom Tomato
We love this tomato
Productive, great-tasting, and dual-purpose.
Big heart-shaped fruits are excellent as a slicer with bright and sweet fresh flavor. Also cooks quickly into a smooth creamy sauce. The easiest-to-peel tomato we know. A true multi-purpose tomato, good for fresh eating, canning, salsa, and sauce. Mid-season. A staff favorite.

Set plants several inches deeper than in the pot-they will root along the stem. Greedy feeder-needs ample amounts of compost or decomposed manure. Needs lots of potassium, phosphorous, but not as much nitrogen. Needs calcium to prevent blossom-end rot; use gypsum or bone meal if necessary. Keep soil most in dry weather with periodic, deep watering and mulch.
