Principe Borghese Tomato

In Stock

Italian heirloom with small, red, plum-shaped fruit. Great for fresh eating as well as sun-drying.
Principe Borghese Certified Naturally Grown Seed

75 days, determinate — The plants produce clusters of small, red, plum-shaped fruits and although they are determinate in growth habit, 'Principe Borghese' will benefit from support such as caging. It is a popular variety for splitting in half and sun drying as they are firm, meaty, and maintain their color and flavor well. Very productive.

Released in the United States by the Chas. H. Lilly Co. in 1910 as 'Prince Borghese'. It was bred and introduced in by the M. Herb Company of Naples, Italy. Lilly stated, "This is a new and distinctly peculiar variety of tomato recently produced by the great Italian horticulturist, M. Herb, from whom we have procured a small quantity of the seed. It has never been grown in this country, but we believe that it will be a success." Another fun and tasty idea is to use them as the "egg" in "Vegan Deviled Eggs." Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
My favorite little tomato!
These are so yummy I just can't resist picking them and eating them straight off the vine! I also cook with them and they are good for drying, too. But they keep so well that I haven't bothered to dry them but once. At the end of the season I pick all the green ones and leave them in an unheated room. They ripen up gradually so I've got fresh tomatoes for a long time into the winter. I ate the last of my stash in January this year!

A "must have" for our garden!
I have been growing these little tomatoes every year for at least 5 years. They are great fresh in salads during the summer, and I always dehydrate as many as I can for the winter. They are great to "re-hydrate" and use in salads and casseroles during the winter when fresh tomatoes are not available from the garden. They do contain a lot of seeds, but you can't beat them for flavor!
