Mama Leone Paste / Red / 5-6 ounces / 75 days / Open Pollinated / Indeterminate
First listed in Seed Savers Exchange Yearbook in 2005 as “seeds given by one of their local customers who had immigrated to the US from Italy,” these 5-6 ounce, meaty, bright red tomatoes have very few seeds—perfect for your favorite sauce. Its name may honor the famous Italian restaurant in NYC’s theater district, now long-closed. Some of its acclaimed pasta recipes can still be found on the web.
