HEIRLOOM Friends, if we could only grow one paste tomato this is it. Without question! Italian Heirloom produces simply incredible amounts of massive 12 to 20 ounce red fruits. Its flavor is the perfect balance of acid and sweet, its texture thick and meaty with very few seeds.

Organic Italian Heirloom Tomato HEIRLOOM Friends, if we could only grow one paste tomato this is it. Without question! Italian Heirloom produces simply incredible amounts of massive 12 to 20 ounce red fruits. Its flavor is the perfect balance of acid and sweet, its texture thick and meaty with very few seeds. We love Italian Heirloom for sandwiches and salsa as well as sauce and so appreciate its tolerance of many diseases, including Late Blight. We had plants producing into early October 2015 in the field here in the Finger Lakes. Many thanks to our friends at Uprising Seeds for sharing this gem with us.

Indeterminate.

75-80 days to maturity

5 of 5 Beautiful. October 12, 2019
Reviewer: Stephanie from Waterloo, NY United States  
Great taste and texture, very good production.  I failed a bit in providing enough support for how large and bountiful the fruits are.  I'm sure next year will be even better now that I have that lesson under my belt.

4 of 5 The big Meaty. January 2, 2019
Reviewer: James Grace from Chelsea, AL United States  
Good size and meaty, some disease resistance we will try this tomato again. It worked well when added to other varieties in putting up tomatoes or in stews & sauces. We are still looking for that old time acid tomato, this ain't it but a worth the space in our garden,

5 of 5 This one's a keeper! December 5, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Canandaigua, NY United States  
Fantastic flavor in a large multi-use tomato. This tomato seems to have it all!  Excellent disease resistance, strong, sturdy plants, huge fruits and wonderful flavor.  I used these fresh, added them to my sauce and even dehydrated them and I was very happy with all the outcomes!

5 of 5 Great tomato November 30, 2018
Reviewer: Paige from Livonia, NY United States  
Neither of us actually likes fresh tomatoes, but we grow an insane amount of them to make salsa, sauce, and canned tomatoes to use all year. They're a great tomato, albeit a bit unruly if you don't have a strong enough support system set up from the start. Everyone we gave them to for eating fresh said they were one of the best tomatoes they've ever tasted!
