'Pisanello da Bruschetta' is a Tuscan heirloom tomato that produces loads of charismatic, deeply red, deeply-ribbed tomatoes, 3-6 oz. each, on indeterminate plants with regular leaves. Fruit are juicy, aromatic, and delicious, with few seeds (great for eaters, kind of annoying for seed farmers!). Originally from Pisa, this is a relatively early tomato, ripening fruit 110 days from germination. The flavor is well-balanced between sweet and sour, pairing perfectly with garlic and olive oil. As the name indicates, this tomato is great for bruschetta!
