Amazing producer of extra large tomatoes, often 2+, up to 5 lbs. or more. Larger specimens often result from multiple, tightly fused ovaries, so lobing is not as pronounced as in most other giant varieties. Red flesh and clear skin with a very pleasant, balanced flavor.
Large, healthy, indeterminate vines also produce surprisingly early for such a large-fruited variety. A multi-generational family heirloom from Castellammare del Golfo, Sicily, Italy. Vincenzo Domingo, who introduced this variety to North America, has grown 4 tomatoes on a single truss with a total weight of around 20 lbs.!
All seed packets of tomatoes contain a minimum of 5 seeds.
