Solanum lycopersicum

Our Costoluto Fiorentino tomato seeds provide gardeners the opportunity to grow a classic Italian heirloom, revered for its distinctive ribbed appearance and deep flavour profile.

When cultivated, these seeds yield medium-sized tomatoes that are notably ribbed or fluted, making them stand out in any garden. They are a bright red colour and are known for their juicy and rich taste, which carries a balance of sweetness and acidity.

In Australia, Costoluto Fiorentino tomatoes have demonstrated adaptability. They're suited for regions with consistent sunlight and warmth but can be nurtured in cooler zones with appropriate care. These tomatoes also have a good defence against some of the more common tomato-related diseases and pests, ensuring a good crop.

In the kitchen, Costoluto Fiorentino tomatoes are exceptional. Their unique shape and rich flavour make them ideal for slicing and presenting in salads or sandwiches. They also work well when cooked, offering a depth of flavour to sauces and stews. Nutritionally, they provide a healthy dose of vitamins A and C, along with other essential nutrients.

For optimal growth, plant these seeds in a mix of fertile, well-draining soil. A spot that receives 6-8 hours of sunlight daily is recommended. Given the weight of the fruit as it matures, some staking may be necessary for support. Regular, even watering will ensure the soil remains moist but not overly wet.
