Principe Borghese Certified Naturally Grown Seed

75 days, determinate — The plants produce clusters of small, red, plum-shaped fruit and although they are determinate in growth habit, 'Principe Borghese' will benefit from support such as caging. It is a popular variety for splitting in half and sun drying as they are firm, meaty, and maintain their color and flavor well. Very productive.

Released in the United States by the Chas. H. Lilly Co. in 1910 as 'Prince Borghese'. It was bred and introduced in by the M. Herb Company of Naples, Italy. Lilly stated, "This is a new and distinctly peculiar variety of tomato recently produced by the great Italian horticulturist, M. Herb, from whom we have procured a small quantity of the seed. It has never been grown in this country, but we believe that it will be a success." Another fun and tasty idea is to use them as the "egg" in "Vegan Deviled Eggs." Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.
