Description
Mama Leone Certified Naturally Grown Seed
85 days, indeterminate — Regular leaf plants produce a good yield of two to six ounce red fruits.

We received our seed from Dr. Carolyn Male and started growing this out in 2008. She told us that this variety was, "first listed in the SSE Yearbook in 2005 by NY KI N who found this as plants at a local nursery who were given the seeds by a local customer who immigrated to the U.S. many years ago from Italy with the seeds." Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

Note: We have been asked if this variety is connected with the famous Mama (Louisa) Leone's Italian restaurant that was located in the theater district of New York City from 1906 to 1959. We have tried to research this further but have run into the proverbial brick wall.

Mama Mia!
Our second year to grow the Mama Leone. We're very pleased with her! Last year, we had to surround her and her stake with 5 ft fencing as it could no longer be tied to the stake. No place left to tie it! Very tall for a Roma, prolific, nice palm sized fruit with amazing flavor. Great sauce, paste and salsa tomato. By the way, we are strictly organic so no commercial fertilizer was used. Really great tomato!
