Details

This Italian heirloom is famous for sun drying. Small 1-2 oz. grape-shaped fruit are very dry and have few seeds. They have a rich tomato taste that is wonderful for sauces. Determinate vines yield clusters of fruit in abundance, perfect for selling in fresh markets and making specialty products. They can be dried right on the plant or in a vegetable dehydrator, and are also outstanding when oven roasted.
