The Red Globe cultivar was discovered in the 50s by the University of California, while in Italy it was cultivated since the 80s. It is the second most widespread variety in Sicily, available in supermarkets and fruit and vegetables stores.
The berries are large, round and contain few seeds. Highly digestible, with diuretic and laxative properties, it resists well to adverse temperatures and long transports.
