Solanum lycopersicum
Heirloom

Fitting of its name, this Italian heirloom from Naples bears finger like trusses of medium-sized paste tomatoes  Incredible yields of  4 oz., 4-5’ fruits with firm meaty flesh and a rich, savory flavor with little seed; ideal for purée, salsa, sauces, and canning. It outperformed San Marzano in our garden with over 25 bunches of tomatoes growing on one plant, having 5-7 fruits per bunch. Semi Indeterminate.

25 seeds 

 

PLANTING 

Germination: 7-14 days

 

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 75-85 degrees F. Cooler soil temperatures increase germination time or results in poor germination.

Seed Sowing Depth: ¼” deep

Starting Indoors: 4-6 weeks before last frost. Sow seeds in flats/cells/pots. Provide 75-85 degrees F soil temperatures. After the first true leaves appears, transplant into larger, 3-6” pots/cells/flats . Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water soluble fertilizer (diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement). Transplant seedlings 24-36” apart after last frost.  

How much does a packet plant:30-40 foot single row    ( varies with seeds count)

Harvest: When fruit is red (or color of the variety planted) and firm.

Tips:  Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost. Mulch and provide even moisture throughout the growing season with good drainage. Plant deeper than they were growing in the containers, it makes a stronger roots system. Apply a light compost tea every few weeks. Do not apply excessive nitrogen, which can promote excessive foliage and poor fruit set.

10 Fingers of Napoli

Planted 1six pack with 10 seeds under gro-lights in my cellar. ALL came up on 3/30/2019! Plants now about 3-4" high still in the 6-pack and outside on my deck for 1-2 hrs a day, then back inside porch, to harden them off before transplanting into their own 4-6" pots. Very pleased with germination rate and how the plants have grow so far.

A real keeper!

This is a fantastic tomato in So. Cal. Stood up to record heat and gave a bumper crop of tomatoes. No problem with blossom end rot, as we have plenty of Calcium in our compost from eggshells. I would rate the flavor as better than my previous favorite San Marzano. A real surprise, give it a try.

All time worst tomato

I usually only write positive reviews of products, but this tomato was so hideously awful I feel people should be warned. I till lime into the soil, no none of my tomato varieties get blossom end rot. Except this one! And then eventually, the plants produced a few small tomatoes. Unfortunately, they were hollow, and watery/seedy, not at all like a good paste tomato,
