FIASCHETTO TOMATO SEEDS
Price for Package of 5 or 10 seeds.
The Fiaschetto tomato, small, sweet, juicy and good for preserving, is part of the gastronomic history in this part of the province of Brindisi (Italy). It was the base for the passata that all families, even in urban areas, used to make for the winter. The idea of using any other type of tomato, even the famous San Marzano, was unthinkable.
The plants only reach a height of 30 to 50 cm and are resistant to tomato mosaic virus, Verticillium, Fusarium, and nematodes. The plants produce lots of deep red tomatoes, with a bit of a nipple at the end.
The Fiaschetto tomato is a delicious bush tomato, ideal for growing in pots or hanging baskets on the balcony or terrace.
In the region of Brindisi, where it comes, it is traditionally used for passata, sauces, and canning.
