Cuor di Bue Tomatoes
The cuor di bue, to me is the #1, big momma, grand Pubah of tomatoes. It's got very thin skin and almost no seeds, so it's loaded with delicious tomatoey flesh. It is as tasty as the Brandywines I grew back in Minnesota but here in Milan, they're sold at every open-air market in the summer. They are the best tomato for about everything from salads to sauces. In the photo you see here is quite a puffy example of the variety; they're often more pearlike with a narrow top and plump bottom. Seeds are available on many UK websites and some Canadian ones but I haven't seen them in the States and US seed sites seem hard to find. If anybody in the States needs seeds, let me know!
