Napoli tomato

This thread is for the Napoli tomato. It's a red paste (the picture makes it look pink) with similarities in production and fruit size to the Romas we grew in 2014. Due to its production, I want to grow it again.

Napoli tomato fruits, whole, as well as other kinds.

Okay, I tasted them, and they were somewhat mealy, and not chalk full of flavor or anything. They do have eastern shade, though.

I take that back, I think it out-produces Roma. The fruits are very durable, too, and have great hang-time perhaps. Ours was transplanted late, and has eastern shade (so, it could probably outperform Roma very easily). It'll probably be tastier with additional sun. I plan to grow it more.

At least two of my plants turned out to be crosses (not the same crosses as each other, either). One of them is especially prolific, and has slightly oblong, but sort of round fruit: It has ripe fruit, now. I harvested one and ate it. Upon completion, my mouth tasted and felt a lot like it feels after I eat a nectarine; the flavor does have some qualities of a nectarine (it's not the same thing as the peach-type flavor I described in Sweet Ozark Orange). It had some acid to it (and perhaps above average malic acid, too). It was pretty good, but probably could have ripened more. the fruit had thick walls, similar in thickness to Napoli's, but probably a little thinner, even though they're very thick.
