'Principe Borghese' is the traditional variety for sun-dried Tomatoes. In Sicily at harvest time, farmhouses are decorated with long bunches of these red, egg-shaped beauties, drying in the sun. The fruits are about 2in long and grow on vigorous, determinate plants. We halve the fruits and dry them in large quantities to use their rich, resonant Tomato flavor throughout the year. Rehydrate them for 10 minutes in water or broth and use them in soups or stews, or on pizza. Fruits ripen about 75 days from transplant.
Our stocky seedlings are grown and shipped in 3in pots that are a full 4in deep, so the plants you receive have strong, well-developed root systems. For more information on growing and care, click Growing Guide.
