It dates to 1885 or earlier, and it was first mentioned by Bruni in "Degli ortaggi e loro coltivazione presso la città di Napoli" and later by Palmieri, in "Annuario della Reale Scuola Superiore d'Agricoltura in Portici" (the current Faculty of Agriculture) (1885). * It is a winter pantry tomato that Italians would hang in their cellars over winter in whole clusters to preserve fresh for a long time. * See [ Parco Nazionale del Vesuvio] website for more information. * The problem with this variety is that it has PDO protected status ('protected designation of origin'), which was granted in 2009.
