Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars
The USDA says they acquired this tomato in the 1950s from Puerto Rico, however it is rumored to orginally come from Italy. No matter where it is from this Costoluto Genovese type tomato is deeply ruffled and tasty! Productive, disease and crack resistant. Excellent slicer or fresh sautee tomato.
