Here it is: the classic variety for canning and saucing, now available as organically grown seed! Also known as plum or paste tomatoes, Roma is a small, thick-walled, flavorful tomato just right for crushing into savory sauces that hold spice beautifully and yield a rich, authentic, meaty tomato tang!
You can expect dozens of 2- to 3-ounce, pear-shaped bright red fruits on very heavy-bearing plants. Roma is a determinate plant, meaning that it sets its crop all at once, which makes harvesting and canning these tomatoes much simpler. Instead of picking newly ripened fruit all summer long, with Roma you can get it all out of the way at once — or, if your growing season permits, make 2 or 3 plantings so that you have multiple harvest dates throughout the summer and fall!
