Costoluto Genovese Sic. Heirloom Tomato Seeds
Price for Package of 10 seeds.
The old Italian favorite that has been around since the early 19th century. Costoluto Genovese is a large (plant height up to 200 cm), juicy Italian tomato with an acidic-tart full-tomato flavor well suited for slicing and serving fresh or cooking. In Italy Costoluto Genovese is a favorite for pasta sauces and pastes
The fruit (weight 130-250 g) is rather flattened and quite attractive with their deep ribbing. This variety is a standard in Italy for both fresh eating and preserving, known for its intensely flavorful, deep red flesh.
Costoluto Genovese has been a Mediterranean favorite since at least the early eighteenth century. The key to this mid-season beefsteak’s rich tomato flavor is heat. Grown away from the dry, sun-drenched gardens of the Mediterranean this tomato might disappoint.
