The origin and history of Pomodorino del 'Piennolo' del Vesuvio D.O.P.

The Pomodorino del 'Piennolo' del Vesuvio D.O.P. tomato has an ancient and fascinating history that goes back centuries. The cultivation of this tomato has been handed down from generation to generation, thanks to the passion and dedication of the farmers of Vesuvius. It is said that the name 'Piennolo' comes from the Neapolitan word of the same name, which means 'pendulum'; in fact the tomatoes are tied with a string and preserved by hanging. This method of preservation, which involves hanging the tomatoes in a cool, well-ventilated place, extends their shelf life by up to several months.
