My own review (2014)
Just love this tomato! It is beautiful, and it's the right one for a home made bruchetta! Red, deeply ribbed and flattend in shape. It has a great tomato flavour and it is juicy and meaty at the same time. Good in sauces or eating fresh!
A gourmet tomato and another favourite of mine!
 - RECOMENDED!
