Pantano Romanesco (Lycopersicon lycopersicum)
Roman Swamp Tomato (Lycopersicon lycopersicum): traditional salad tomato, the berry reaches 250 gr, has a slightly flattened and ribbed shape, this characteristic varies in the various selections, the oldest ones are very ribbed and have a more irregular shape.
In Ardea, town on the outskirts or Rome that is home to Cercatori’s land, there was a traditional variety called the Ardea’s swamp or “stortone”.
We have been looking for this variety for some time without success, still have not surrended.
The plant, undeterminate, is resistant to the common pathologies of the species, the scaled harvest provides fresh tomatoes until the cold arrives.
