Costoluto Genovese

The classic deep red Italian tomato with the beautiful fluted shape. Even though it is not a plum shaped paste tomato, I have included it with them because it is known for making excellent tomato juice and some of the very best sauce. The flavor can be good raw- some people really like it but is intensified when roasted or cooked. Fruits are 3-8 oz. in size and the plants are vigorous with very good production.


From Tatiana’s TOMATObase:

 Italian heirloom variety, originated in Riviera region decades ago. Particularly popular in the area of Piedmont, the tomato sauce industry. According to Amy Goldman, it was first introduced in North America in 1985 by Le Marche Seeds International and Redwood City Seed Company. 'Costoluto' means 'ribbed' in Italian.
