JUMPING TOMATOES CREATE A COCOON

There is a variety of cherry tomato in Puglia, that grows only nearby Alberobello.
This tomato has a hard skin and hard pulp as well. As hard as if you trow it - even with a certain stenght - on the table, it sprimgs up, it jump up to your face.






These tomatoes are picked in august and saved in garlands hanging from beams at the ceiling.

After a couple of months, they start to create a cocoon, a sort of thin mold that covers them, giving protections. 


Nicola says that they last until Easter. He calls these tomatoes:
Pomodori Piennici.
