We are especially excited to be offering a few Italian heirloom tomato varieties that are traditionally used for drying. We are growing these from seed brought back from Italy by our friend Debra. These tomatoes can be sun-dried, dehydrated, or hung to dry on the plants at the end of the season. They bear small, relative low-moisture fruit, which makes them particularly suitable for drying. They can also be eaten fresh! Here are the three we’re offering as seedlings this year:  Principe Borghese (small red plum), Inverno a Grappoli (“winter grape”), and a yellow variety from Puglia called Ponderosa sel Oro.
