Flavorino Plum Tomatoes
Inventory, bskt : 0
Flavorino is a mini plum tomato with the characteristic egg-like shape, bright red, smooth, thick skin of other plum tomato varieties. Flavorino plum tomatoes grow in a chain-like pattern along a small branch with about 8 to 12 fruits on each branch. A single fruit can weigh between 35 and 40 grams, its flesh has few seeds, high sugar and acid levels, and low moisture content. They are ideal for cooking down into a tomato sauce or paste. The disease-resistant plants grow to an average of four to six feet, and because this is a determinate plant, the fruits will grow to a set height and ripen about the same time, producing one large crop typically toward the end of the season.
Flavorino plum tomatoes are available in the summer months.
Flavorino plum tomatoes are a member of the Solanaceae family along with the potato, eggplant and tobacco. Tomatoes, originally termed Solanum lycopersicum, are botanically referred to as Lycopersicon esculentum, although modern studies are encouraging a return to the original classification. Flavorino plum tomatoes is a hybrid variety discovered in 2003 by De Ruiter Seeds.
