Ten Fingers is a paste or canning type that produces huge yields of elongated, pointed fruit reaching 5-6 inches in length, weighing up to 3 ounces. Fruits are produced in bunches, giving rise to fanciful comparison to hands, thus the name! The flavor is much superior to many modern paste types, being sweet and rich. This fine variety is from Naples, Italy. Determinate bush variety will grow well in a small space or container because it is a “bush type” and not a “vine type”.
