Tomato, Principe Borghese (Organic)
Solanum lycopersicum. Red. 70 days. Semi-det.
Classic Italian sun drying tomato. Red pointy plums with thick flesh and skin. Often listed as determinate but plants grow rather tall and yield late into the season, benefiting from some support. Usually dried for winter use, but also makes a great addition sliced and roasted, tossed on pizza. We slice the 1oz fruit in half and put them in our dehydrator. Viney plants can be brought in at the end of the season to ripen any remaining unripe fruit. Many people simply hang the pulled plants in a shed or garage. Another way of preserving them is to hang the clusters inside and they will usually keep for weeks or longer.
