a Grappoli d'Inverno
60-70 days - Italy - Semi-determinate
Winter Grape - this is an excellent, multi-purpose tomato that is easy to grow. This compact, indeterminate gives a heavy load of grape shaped tomatoes perfect for eating fresh, slow cooking sauces and drying. This tomato stores a long while and is often finished on the plant, simply pull the whole tomato plant in the fall and hang it in a cool dry place and the tomatoes will ripen beautifully on the drying plant. This works with all kinds of tomatoes but a good storing tomato like this one is a perfect candidate for this ripening method.
