Description

Italian Roma Tomato - Thick and Plentiful

The classic Italian paste and canning tomato, also used to add body to soups and juices. Early maturing, meaty plum shaped paste tomato; few seeds and a rich flavor. Compact plants bear well, up to 200 fruits per plant.

Excellent for home garden use, works well in containers. 

History

Tomatoes were grown as a crop in Mexico and Peru in pre-Columbian times, but the early history of domestication is not well known (most likely in Mexico). In Europe, tomatoes were grown as ornamentals (thought to be poisonous) and became popular as a food only in the 18th century.

Uses

Raw or cooked the tomato is one of the most widely used and versatile foods from your garden. Use fresh in salads, sandwiches, and salsas. Cooked in sauces and stews. Can be stuffed, dried, puree, paste or powdered. The uses are endless!

Growing Tip

Tomatoes suffer more transplant shock than other vegetables, but you can minimize this by hardening them off for a week or two first. This means setting them outdoors in their pots in a protected place so that they get some warm sun, a little gentle wind, and even some cool (not freezing) nights. This will help them adjust to some of the stresses of real life before having their roots transplanted into the ground.

    Excellent tomato plant

    Posted by Anne Bonet, IL on Jul 17th 2017

    I tried these seeds for the first time last summer and I'm glad I did. These plants were the only ones that survived the tomato wilt that hit my garden. They also produced many great tasting tomatoes-I was able to freeze them and were still eating them! These made great salsas and sauces.

    We grew these tomatoes in 2013 for the first time, they were so prolific I literally had more tomatoes that I could make into sauce and can! Great flavor also, thank you Terroir Seeds!!
