This 19th century Italian heirloom is one of the best tomatoes for making sauces and cooking in general. The large, deep red, fluted fruit are heavily ridged and lobed with meaty full-flavoured, slightly tart flesh and few seeds. (Cordon)
Seeds are surface-sown or covered only slightly. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Containers are held in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take anywhere from 3-10 days. Move sprouting plantings immediately to bright light conditions, such as a south-facing window. Inadequate light is a frequent cause of failure of young seedlings. At about the time of last frost, set out seedlings into grow bags.
