Costoluto Genovese

$3.50

4″ pots only

Italian. Flat, kind of oddly shaped tomato – what a great taste! On the sweet side and very juicy. Makes a tangy, “tomatoey” sauce and is prized for this purpose in Italy. A California market grower says it makes the all-time best tomato juice. The taste is attributed to its high acid content. This Italian heirloom has large, deep red fruit with orange shoulders that are squat and so ribbed they're nearly pleated. This compact indeterminate plant is high yielding, too. 85 days. Indeterminate. Open-pollinated.
