- 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.
