Roma Tomatoes

Meaty and Nearly Seedless

  • Heirloom variety produces high yields
  • Meaty, nearly seedless pear-shaped fruits
  • Tops for canning and sauces
  • Also good for salsa and dehydrating
  • Determinate variety
Heirloom variety produces high yields of pear-shaped red fruits with thick walls, meaty textures and few seeds. Roma tomatoes, sometimes called plum tomatoes or Italian tomatoes, are a favorite for cooking into sauce and canning. Because they contain less moisture than many other varieties, Roma tomatoes are also a top choice for chopping into salsas and dehydrating for sun-dried tomatoes. A determinate, Roma plants produce tomatoes that ripen at about the same time. For the best flavor, allow your Roma tomatoes to ripen on the vine. Disease Resistance: F V. Approx. 75 DAYS.
