Palmira’s Northern Italian

A really nice old Italian beefsteak tomato with very good flavor. The red fruit are large, 10-20 oz, and even larger. They are very meaty and still juicy and they rarely crack. Flavor is rich and full with a little more acid than sweetness. Production is good to very good on vigorous plants.


From Tatiana’s TOMATObase:

  • Introduced by 'Skip', who described it as follows:

“I secured this most unusual large, red beefsteak tomato from a charming Italian lady at our local trash and treasure market. She told me that this tomato originated in northern Italy. That was all she could tell me, and being called Palmira I have named it after her. The fruits are not sweet, more like Ray’s Greek (which I have also put into circulation) that has proved so popular with all who have grown it. Another excellent heirloom tomato.”
