    A local surveyor gave me seeds for Redorta tomatoes that he purchased from Seeds of Italy. I only planted a few and they got off to a late start, but they are starting to take off. It is a San Marzano and we are looking forward to tying them fresh as well as for sauce. I was not too enthused at first, but I am starting to change my mind after seeing the fruit. Definitely will be saving seeds from this baby.

    "San Marzano Redorta. Franchi Special Selection. Named for a mountain in the Alps, this is a very large (10-12 ounce) San Marzano type plum tomato. Indeterminate. Large, vigorous plant. This has real tomato flavor and is good to eat fresh, make sauce, can or dry."

    When we first tried these my wife said that there was no juice and they were going to be dry. That is not the case, as they like a watermelon in that when you eat them the flesh is full of juice. Definitely, a do again variety. Very few seeds though.
