Solanum lycopersicum

The quintessential Italian paste tomato. The ONLY tomato for some...

Why import ‘em from Italy when you can grow your own right here? Sure, we’re not at the base of Mt. Vesuvius, but we do have volcanic soils, and these rich, tasty, nearly seedless plum types grow beautifully here.

Indeterminate. Open-pollinated.

Tomatoes are native to northwestern South America and by at least 500 BC they had been domesticated and were being cultivated as far north as modern-day Mexico, enjoyed by Aztec and other civilizations. They spread to Europe and the Caribbean through the Spanish colonizers, where they became staple parts of the food culture in many European countries as well, including Italy.

Seeds grown by Rich Felton in Rawlins, Wyoming, and Affinity Farm in Moscow, Idaho.

30 seeds.

Directions: Start indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost and transplant out after. Bury past first set of leaves, add eggshells to soil for calcium, and provide support.
