Tomato Beefsteak (A) Solanum Lycopersicum L.
This is a Slow Food tomato Lucca Canestrino Tomato - Presìdi Slow Food - Slow Food Foundation (fondazioneslowfood.com) from Lucca which was largely abandoned in favour of modern varieties but has now been brought back from the brink and has lost flavour. This tomato form Tuscany has a tipical basket shape and slightly ribbed. Solid flesh, meaty, ideal for slicing and drizzle with olive oil but due to its low water content, good for sauces and canning. It is described as having a 'heady fragrance and intense flavour. This is the must have tomato for 2023.
