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.
