The Seed Savers Exchange - (aka Russo Sicilian Togetta) Introduced to SSE by Ann Fuller of Indiana. She received the seed from a man who brought it to the U.S. in 1987 from Sicily where his family had grown in many years. Anne said its slices look like red-petaled flowers (Rosso means “red”). Striking crayfish red costoluta (ribbed) fruits weigh up to 6 ounces. Firm pithy flesh is perfect for making tomato sauce or paste. Thin skin bruises easily. Determinate. 70-90 days from transplant.
Instructions - Sow seeds indoors ¼" deep. Tomatoes are sensitive to freezing temperatures, so wait to transplant outdoors until the soil is warm. Plant in full sun.
Sow indoors 6 weeks before the last frost
Germination 7-14 days
Plant Outdoors: 24-36” Apart
Support: Cage, stake, or trellis
