Coming from the area around Florence this indeterminate (cordon - not a bush as stated by some other seed companies) produces medium-large old-fashioned mishapen heavy ribbed beef tomatoes. They are very meaty (can weigh around 150g each) and are ideal for slicing. This variety is so good it has won the Royal Horticultral Society's Award of Garden Merit.
