Organic Piennolo Del Vesuvio Paste Tomato
65 days to harvest
HEIRLOOM Of course, they’re darling & delectable! Organic Piennolo Del Vesuvio Paste Tomato is also early to mature in short seasons but what we really love her for is her heritage as the beloved ‘hanging tomato of Vesuvius,’ an heirloom selected for centuries in Italy’s volcanic soils. Pianollo has phenomenally low water content as a paste tomato & her fairly thick skins allows her to be hung, traditionally, for months indoors to extend the season. Her concentrated flavor after even one month of hanging is heavenly! If you savor to seeds & stories, you will be so glad you grew Piennolo del Vesuvio.

Jonathan Mustich –
Just starting harvesting the first batch of these and so far they are fantastic. I’m in zone 7b and the plant has produced beautifully with a lot of fruit. I’m looking forward to the end of the season and hanging these to develop more flavor thru the fall. Would certainly recommend these to any tomato lover.
