Description

Tomato - Amish Paste - Lycopersicon lycopersicum

Tender Annual Indeterminate. Heirloom. Amish Paste tomatoes are an acorn-shaped, deep-red, paste-type fruit. The vines produce medium-sized, 8-12 ounce fruit. This Amish heirloom has thick flesh and few seeds. It performs better when staked.

Did You Know? Research shows that protective effects of tomatoes against prostate cancer and cardiovascular disease result from the synergy of lycopene with other phytonutrients naturally present in whole tomatoes. Lycopene is highest in organically grown tomatoes.

Soil & Water: Tomatoes love fertile soil rich in organic matter. Add plenty of compost prior to planting. Soil pH is preferred between 5.5-7.0. Soak the soil 4"-6" deep at 7-day intervals.

Planting & Growing: Sow seeds in flats 6-8 weeks before the last frost and thin to 2" apart after the first true leaves appear. Before transplanting after the last frost, harden off the plants by placing them outdoors for a few hours to start, increasing the amount of time each day until they are accustomed to a full day of sunlight.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest when individual fruits give slightly under finger pressure; the shoulders may not have changed color yet.

Reviews

great large paste tomato for canning

I have been growing these for a few years now as the tomatoes for my spaghetti sauce and stewed tomatoes, etc. I love the larger size that makes peeling less of a chore. They render down nicely for sauce. I'm in zone 4 so shorter summers but these do great, huge plants with lots of fruit!

Larger than Expected

This was a nice productive tomato and the fruit was quite large for a paste tomato which was nice. I did have a little trouble with the tomatoes being hollow, but I think that has to do with the growing conditions more than the variety.
