Amazing producer of extra large tomatoes, often 2+, up to 6+ lbs by elite growers. Larger specimens often result from multiple, tightly fused ovaries, so lobing is not as pronounced as in most other giant varieties. Red flesh and clear skin with a very pleasant, balanced flavor - very positive reviews from customers. Main picture is of a delicious 4.670 lb. specimen, which was the Utah State Record heaviest tomato for a few weeks. Large, healthy, indeterminate vines also produce surprisingly early for such a large-fruited variety - 71 days documented. A multi-generational family heirloom from Castellammare del Golfo, Sicily, Italy. Vincenzo Domingo, who introduced this variety to North America, has grown 4 tomatoes on a single truss with a total weight of around 20 lbs.! Sadly, Vincenzo passed away in Dec. 2014, but his tomato growing legacy continues with this variety. Source of seeds offered by Delectation of Tomatoes was directly from those produced by Vincenzo and generously shared by his daughter, Maria Cicciarella. Variety named by DT with consultation and consent of Vincenzo and Maria.
