Variety from Italy
Fiaschetto tomato, small, sweet, juicy, is part of the culinary history in this part of the province of Brindisi (Italy). It was the basis for the passata that all families, even in urban areas, made for the winter. The idea of using any other type of tomato, even the famous San Marzano, was inconceivable. In Italy, this tomato variety is used also for drying under the sun.
The plants only reach 30 to 50 cm high and are resistant to mosaic tomato virus, Verticillium, Fusarium, and nematodes. The plants produce many deep red tomatoes 30 to 60 grams weight (up to 500) , with a bit of nipple at the end.
In the area of Brindisi, where it comes, it is traditionally used for butterflies, sauces and canned.
