Tomato, 'Italian Heirloom'

*Heirloom*
The vines will grow 6- 8’ tall. They will be covered in flowers and heavy with green fruit. Big, ½ - 1+lb fruit. You will taste the first one and there will be no going back. Suddenly you will notice more flowers, more vines, and more fruit. You will get desperate. Friends will begin avoiding you and your, “gifts”.  You will can every night and avoid the plants during the day. When you can no longer stand it you will return to find…more fruit!. They will give you no rest. You will never settle for less. They are that good. Large pear-ish shaped, red tomatoes ideal for both slicing and sauce as they are very meaty and contain few seeds. Incredible flavor with just the right balance of acid and sweet. Early and productive for such a large variety. Long and rather gangly vines are normal for these.
Indeterminate. 70-80 days. UO


Packet: 30-35 seeds

At Maple Alley Inn, we have grown Italian Heirloom for two years, and plan to do so again. The largest harvested in 2016 was one pound nine ounces. Last year was an off year - the largest only went one pound eight ounces.

They make excellent paste, but the cooks like them also for salads; one commented that, upon being sliced open "they look like raw beefsteak, they are so solid!" (Posted on 2/27/2018)

These abundant tomatoes performed exactly as described! In the summer of 2017, we made sauce every week from our 6 plants. We should have used supports, as we lost many fruits to slugs as the plants sprawled on the ground-but even so we grew more than we could handle. When summer ended, we piled up all the green tomatoes on the porch, where the majority of them successfully ripened in the cool October weather. Best in sauce or roasted. (Posted on 2/6/2018)
