Principe Borghese Tomato - Seeds - Versatile Variety
Latin name: Solanum lycopersicum
Full of Quebec sun and Italian heritage, the Principe Borghese tomato is very versatile. It is excellent to enjoy fresh off the plant, it explodes in the mouth and is quite juicy for an Italian! Exquisite flavour. Delicious fresh or for cooking confits and excellent sauces.
It is also very popular for drying: cut the tomato in half lengthwise and let it dry in the sun… But let's be realistic and a little less romantic unfortunately, here, in Quebec, you're more likely to be drying in a dehydrator or oven!
It's so productive you won't know what to do with it! The plant is quite compact, so it is a good choice for small spaces. Weather and cold resistant. No cracking. Disease resistant. This variety is flawless both in cultivation and in use… Yes, I've been won over! And you will certainly be too if you ever choose to try it!

Beau petit plant compact et super productif, les tomates fraîches croquent sous la dent, presque aussi petites que les tomates cerises, idéales dans les sauces. Mes préférées!
