Principe Borghese Tomato Seeds

Price for Package of 5, 10, 20 seeds.

The Principe Borghese tomato is an Italian heirloom famous for sun drying. The red plum-shaped fruits are about two inches long and one or two ounces in size. They have a thin skin and a thick, very meaty flesh that houses few seeds and little juice, with a rich classic tomato flavor. The crack-resistant fruit grows in clusters on hardy, fast-growing determinate plants, which spread laterally and ripen all at once. Although they are determinate in growth habit, Principe Borghese tomato plants will benefit from extra support, such as trellising or caging, as they can grow up to six feet and produce many weighty clusters of fruit.

It is an heirloom variety as the seeds have been passed down through generations of farmers and gardeners and families. Unlike hybrids, heirloom varieties are not selectively bred for certain qualities, but are instead open-pollinated, meaning that their seed will grow true to type plants exactly like their predecessors.

Principe Borghese is the traditional Italian variety for sun-dried tomatoes, known in Italy as “pomodori secchi”, and it can be found filling backyards and soaking up the sun throughout Italy. Italians are known for hanging the whole plant up to dry, though the fruit can also be sliced in half and sun-dried on screens.

Principe Borghese tomatoes date back to the 1910s in southern Italy. The Spanish originally brought the tomato back to Europe after Cortez conquered Mexico City in the 16th century, and the climate in Italy allowed for many new varieties of tomato to develop with intense flavor. Principe Borghese is known to be heat tolerant and very hardy and can grow well in most regions of the United States.

The number of seeds in the package and grams?

Note that wherever the number of seeds is indicated in grams, there may be more or fewer seeds in the package because the seeds are not the same size and weight.

If indicated in grams, the number of seeds loses relevance and is only there to show the approximate number of seeds in the package.

For example "Price for pack of 50 (1g) seeds." so you are not buying the number of seeds but the weight.
