The best for drying

I grew these in 2012 and they are simply the best drying tomato out there. The plant was HUGE -- spread across a 12 by 6 foot barn wall within 2 months of planting. However, this variety seems very susceptible to blight and we lost the plant in late summer... but still had harvested about 500 tomatoes from it! I'm trying again this year and planning to stay more on top of plant diseases.
Great fresh & for drying

I'm not a green thumb, so territorial has helped me now for several years with their wonderful plants. I'm also not a tomato fan, but decided to try these. The flavor of the Principe Borgese is rich and flavorful in cooking and great in salads. I dried several batches, and they rehydrate with incredible flavor. Can't go wrong with this variety.
