Tomato - Rosso Sicilian


Seed Savers Exchange Organic Packet

(Organic Italian Heirloom) Introduced to SSE by Ann Fuller of Indiana. She received the seed from a man who brought it to the U.S. in 1987 from Sicily where his family had grown it many years. Anne said its slices look like red-petaled flowers (rosso means “red”). Striking crayfish red costoluta (ribbed) fruits weigh up to 6 ounces. Firm pithy flesh is perfect for making tomato sauce or paste. Thin skin bruises easily. Determinate. 70-90 days from transplant (approx. 25 seeds/pkt)
