85 days. Gorgeous deep-red fruits reach to one-pound-plus, containing very few seeds. Originally introduced by Comstock, Ferre and Co in the 1980’s, having been received as a gift from a customer who reportedly brought the seeds from his native Italy. Preserved and beloved by local gardeners in and around Comstock’s hometown of Wethersfield, Connecticut. A dual-purpose type equally at home canned or in paste, or atop your favorite garden-fresh sandwich! Images shown are of unripe fruit.
