Details

Carmello, from France, bears large crops of round, red, juicy, crack-resistant fruits with a high weight-to-size ratio. It's a winner on all counts: taste, productivity, and stamina. The exceptionally fine flavor is the pure essence of a tomato, a perfect balance of sweet and acid. The plants are widely adapted and disease resistant, too. Good for slicing in salads, sautéed, or as an integral part of any dish. Consistently produces, even in cooler weather!
