Torre Guaceto Fiaschetto Tomato

The Fiaschetto tomato, small, sweet, juicy and good for preserving, is part of the gastronomic history in this part of the province of Brindisi. It was the base for the passata that all families, even in urban areas, used to make for the winter. The idea of using any other type of tomato, even the famous San Marzano, was unthinkable. But despite its deep roots in the local culture, the cherry tomato came close to disappearing. It cost too much to cultivate and especially to harvest, and yields were too low compared to the modern hybrids developed for sauce making.

Season

Harvest begins from the second week of June and continues throughout the summer

The cultivation started in a land at an altitude of only 15 meters and close to the sea; the
plant has shown an extreme adaptability, considering the little water (brackish) used to wet it and the absence of synthetic chemicals to grow it. If yields are still limited, the response of consumers has been excellent.
