“Nonna Antonina” is a meaty and tasty red beefsteak tomato. I chose it to include in this coming season’s “Special Gift Packets” to send with orders from Bunny Hop Seeds. You have the option to add one packet with your order to your shopping cart with no extra charge. Please choose only one of these varieties listed as special gifts for each order. If your order contains more than one of the special gift varieties, I will select one of those to send.
This tomato has a story that maybe some of you already know. “A family heirloom of Sara Porporato and Jörg-M. Schröter, Volvera, Italy, who have been growing this tomato every year since they received the seeds from Sara’s grandmother. Sara’s grandmother grew this tomato for more than 40 years. Nonna means ‘grandmother’ in Italian. Jörg-M. Schröter suggests that this tomato should not be sold, but only given away for free.”
I have very limited packets this season, but I will grow it again in the spring 2019 season and continue this offering.
