This small, fragrant tomato can be found all over backyards and farmyards in Italy, drying right on the vine, or hanging from barn rafters where the dried fruits last into the winter months. Small, plum-shaped tomatoes are set in clusters of 6 to 8 fruits on prolific, 6' vines. They can be dried on the plant or in a vegetable dehydrator, and are also outstanding roasted or in sauce.

These tomato plants produce an abundance of fruit, and keep on giving! I would definitely recommend these seeds for anyone who loves cherry tomatoes. Prior to buying these seeds I would always buy plants from a store and they would only produce a fraction of what the Borghese plants produce.

Haven't tried drying them yet, but they are good in salads and salsa. Good snack size, but they are not as sweet as some snackers. Productive plants produce bright red fruits.
