This variety was given to Brad of Wild Boar Farms by an elderly Italian gentleman who had been keeping the variety alive for 59 years. The original seeds were given to him by someone else who had developed the variety from a cross he made forty to fifty years earlier, making the variety over 100 years old. The supply is limited. This variety is currently sold out on the Wild Boar Farms website.Large Meaty Paste Heirloom. Very Good Production. Dense Meaty with Great Well Balanced Flavor.
