Tomato, Grappoli d'Inverno (Organic)
Solanum lycopersicum. Red. 60-70 days. Semi-det.
Not for fresh eating. Small bushes ripen plum-sized fruit early and keep very well once picked. Unimpressive when eaten fresh, the flavor transforms into deliciousness once dried. It’s also good roasted. A selection of a type of tomato with strains grown in many regions of Italy for winter storage. Fruit is tied in ristras, hung in a cool place and stored for months. We saw this done in Italy and have successfully done it ourselves, making for the perfect homemade pizza topping all winter long. Grappoli d’Inverno means ‘bunches of winter’ in Italian.
