Nostrano Grasso

Very rare heirloom from Italy. This tomato is largely unheard of in the US. It produces small to medium sized tomatoes. But don't let it's size fool you. What it lacks in size it makes up for in taste. Superb tomato flavor with a hint of sweetness. Would make a great sauce tomato. Will need some support. Probably one of my new favorites now.

 How to Save Seeds

Tomatoes are self pollinating, so separate by 50ft is sufficient. Harvest tomatoes when ripe and you can even let them set for a week or so before saving seeds. Once you are ready to harvest simply cut in half scoop out seeds and pulp into a mason jar of water for fermenting. Then seal jar with a lid and place in and warm place out of direct sunlight. After 5 to 7 days of fermenting pour out seeds floating on top of the water along with mold and then pour rest of the good seeds, on the bottom, over a fine mess strainer to catch them. Dry well in fine mesh or paper towels but turn often so they don't stick to paper.
