Canestrino Tomato Seeds, A rare Italian heirloom tomato.
70-75 days. Meaning Little Basket, Canestrino is a tasty Italian heirloom from Tuscany with a plump red body and slender green-yellow shoulders.
This perfect little dumpling of a Tomato is borne on vigorous, indeterminate vines. Its slightly ribbed, pear-shaped fruits weigh in at just 8 ounces and are best picked when slightly green for the most flavorful gourmet taste. Beautifully scalloped and delicious freshly sliced, meaty Canestrino is also a top pick for Tomato paste. (OP.)
