This is probably the best and largest paste tomato I have ever grown. It is truly special. It stands far above other pastes. So meaty and sweet with a low seed count and deep red color. For me it is the perfect paste tomato. If you like to grow 'saucers' you will love these.

HISTORY: Terry Prunet, owner of The Secret Seed Cartel, received seeds for this amazing paste tomato from Bill Roemer of Ohio. He tells the story of it originally being brought to the U.S. with Julia Pentz sometime before WWII from Yugoslavia. Julia gave seeds to her brother Anton Fessler in 1951 when he emigrated to the U.S. from Germany. Anton passed seeds to Michele Abbittista in 1960 and this is who Bill received his seed from in 1980. Bill worked for years selecting and saving seed only from the largest, earliest tomatoes and came to name the variety Abbittista after the family that gave him his original seeds.
