With a delicious sweetness and rich umami flavor, Terra Amore e Fantasia Pomodori Pelati are peeled and canned only in their own juices, but you’ll notice bright notes of natural basil flavor that make these an exceptional pantry staple. Use them for pasta sauces, soups, on homemade pizza, as an alternative to wine in meat stews, and in any dish you want to brighten with a bold infusion of southern Italian flavor.

Terra Amore e Fantasia get their name from a popular Italian film, and evoke a time when things were, at least in the kitchen, more simple and pure. They come from an ancient variety local to Puglia; challenging to grow and with a naturally low yield, these tomatoes were slowly disappearing from the fields until our producer Sabatino Abagnale committed to preserving their excellent flavor for future generations.

Grown in limited quantities by friends of Sabatino, a cooperative of young tomato farmers in Foggia, Puglia, these tomatoes are harvested by hand each August when they are perfectly ripe and fleshy. Sabatino selects and cans these tomatoes at his home in Campania, and sells them alongside his world famous Miracolo di San Gennaro Pomodori.

These tomatoes are produced entirely by hand, as farmers in southern Italy have for centuries. He has a passionate love for his land and dedication to carrying on the agricultural traditions that sustained his ancestors, and is committed to growing that tradition into a more hopeful future for the next generation. Sabatino’s passion shows in his line of outstanding products, including Miracolo di San Gennaro Pomodori and Miracolo di San Gennaro Pomodorini, and Terra Amore & Fantasia whole peeled tomatoes from Puglia.
