Tomato Principe Borghese. Small indeterminate plants bear prolifically and must be staked or caged. Tomatoes set on clusters of 7-10 fruit each weighing about 2 oz. They hold extremely well on the vine. 72 days. Eat fresh in salad or dry for sun-dried tomatoes. They also make outstanding oven-roasted tomatoes; slice in half, drizzle with some olive oil, bake at 250°F until mostly done, sprinkle with fresh basil, oregano, etc. Eat as a contorno or freeze. 1.5 gram packet, approx. 375 seeds.

growing well in the southwest, but really not that sweet. is it poor soil? the weather is cooling slightly so perhaps that will sweeten the fruit.

I grow several of these plants every year. When my child was little she would eat them right out of the garden. I used them in an oven-roasted sauce an uncooked sauce and a quick sauce. Also, in tomato salads. Check out Lydia Bastianich for some great recipes for cherry tomato sauces.

These tomatoes are doing really well this summer so hopefully they taste good, I'm looking forward to drying them out.
