Tomato 'Fiaschetto di Manduria'

Fiaschetto is a regional treasure of Puglia in Southeast Italy complete with a designated Slow Food presidia. These small, 2-3 oz, plum shaped tomatoes with a slight nipple at the blossom end hang like grapes from the bushy determinate plants in such prolific quantities that we eventually had to just stop picking them because we couldn’t keep up with the processing. In Puglia it is preferred even over the more famous San Marzano as the base of passata di pomodoro, an uncooked tomato sauce that emphasizes the freshness and fruitiness of the tomatoes. Here at the farm we put up several quarts of delicious sauce, but later found perhaps an even better use for it: drying. It is the perfect size for halving and dehydrating for enjoying in the winter months on your pastas and pizzas. The harvests are extremely early for a paste type and conveniently concentrated for processing purposes. The most productive plum/paste type we’ve grown and unlike many varieties of the hot Mediterranean south, well adapted to our climate. Determinate.
