Tomato, Petrillo (Organic)
Solanum lycopersicum. 70 days. Indet.
Tall plants produce red, ruffled, fluted 3-4″ fruit weighing 3-4 oz. A high yielding and beautiful tomato similar to the Italian variety Costoluto Genovese but earlier to mature. Good flavor with an excellent, slightly tart bite. Petrillo is perfect diced and thrown fresh into pasta or salad, the ripe fruit keep well on the plant and in the kitchen. Fruit produce very few seeds. Originating in Puerto Rico pre-1952, we sourced it from USDA GRIN (Germplasm Resources Information Network), the US equivalent to a national gene bank.
