“Grandi de la Senora” (Grandi della Signora), meaning “Great Lady,” is a difficult to find variety, originating in Italy, near Rome. I grew deep red oblates and hearts, ranging from medium to large. The one description I found states that these can grow to over a pound, so the fruit size was likely diminished by the pickle bucket sized pot in which I grew her.
The flavor and texture were excellent, a balanced sweet flavor and a meaty texture with few seeds. In addition to being a late variety, the Great Lady did not care for my heat and humidity, so I did not have many fruits for seed harvest.
