Tomato Paste 'Cipolla's Pride'

  • Sale
  • Regular price $4.50

Large, refined sauce tomato.

Tough plants produce impressive yields of high-quality 10–16 oz. fruits in a concentrated set, which is ideal for home gardeners harvesting for canning and sauce. The flavor is fantastic and fully developed. Dry texture ensures fruits cook down quickly. Selected by the Cipolla family and submitted to us by Larry Cipolla of Minnesota. The original seeds were brought to Brooklyn, NY from Sicily in 1906 by Larry's great grandfather, Emilio. The variety was then grown for decades on the 20-acre family homestead in Connecticut, where it was lovingly referred to as "Grandpa's Tomato". Larry continued to select the variety, renaming it Cipolla's Pride.
