Tomato 'Principe Borghese' Seeds

A tomato with few seeds sounds rather an enigma, but Principe Borghese is exactly that - an heirloom plant with a low moisture content bred primarily for sun drying so that the flavour is intensified. The plant is vigorous and bushy with fruit that can be eaten straight from the garden, or oven baked where its rich, classic taste can be fully appreciated.


Franchi, established in 1783, is the oldest family-run seed company in the world. It specialises in endangered and heritage vegetable varieties, inspiring growers to support biodiversity by planting something slightly different from the mainstream.
