  • Originally from Italy, seed was brought to the US in the 1950s by a gentleman named Gildo Pietroboni, who passed away in the mid-1990s. The seeds were passed from Mr. Pietroboni to his son, whose friend shared them with Ferp Necciai of Monongahela, Pennsylvania. Ferp Necciai sent some seeds to David Lemasters of Pennsylvania in 2009, and David shared few of the original seeds with some tomato gardeners and SSE members.
  • See the discussion thread at Tomatoville forum ([1]) for more details.
  • First offered in the Seed Savers 2011 Yearbook by Neil Gillard of Ontario, Canada.
  • Introduced commercially by Tatiana's TOMATObase Seeds in 2012.
