Join the throngs of cooks who constantly rank this Italian heirloom as one of the best in taste tests. A deeply ribbed exterior harkens back to Tomatoes of old and presents a beautiful scalloped edge when sliced. But don't be fooled by the exterior. The inside has an intense and acidic flavor that is ideal for sandwiches, salads, and of course, sauces or pastes. Deep red fruits of 'Costoluto Genovese' ripen on indeterminate vines that do well in hot weather while continuing into cooler temperatures late in the season. The earthy flavor complements the large, 6-8oz size of its fruit. Bon Appetit! Matures 78 days from transplant.
