SPOTLIGHT: Costoluto Genovese

New to our farm stand this year, the Costoluto Genovese tomato is a wonderful tomato for making sauces, but unlike many sauce and paste tomatoes, it’s also a nice choice for fresh eating.

Hailing from Italy, where it is a favorite tomato for sauces and concentrates, the Costoluto Genovese dates back to before the nineteenth century.

It is an attractive tomato, with ruffled, round eight to ten ounce fruits that have a slightly flattened shape. The skin and flesh of this tomato is deep cherry red.  It is also a good tomato for fresh eating and is very tasty sliced onto a sandwich.
