Roma VF Paste Tomato Seeds (Organic)

Roma VF Paste Tomato Seeds (Organic)

Sauce Maker's Choice

The Roma VF Paste Tomato, scientifically known as Solanum lycopersicum, is a cultivar highly valued for its utility in culinary paste and sauce preparation. Bred for its resistance to Verticillium and Fusarium wilts, this variety is robust against common tomato afflictions, ensuring a healthier crop.

Characterized by its determinate growth habit, the Roma VF plant typically reaches a manageable height of 3-4 feet. It features a dense leaf canopy, which protects the developing fruit from direct sunlight. The plant produces uniformly plum-shaped tomatoes, notable for their smooth, deep red skin and substantial size.

These tomatoes are distinguished by their firm, meaty flesh with low moisture content, making them ideal for cooking and processing into paste and sauce. They possess a rich, concentrated flavor with a subtle tanginess, enhancing their suitability for culinary use.

For optimal growth, the Roma VF requires full sun exposure and well-drained soil. Planting should commence indoors 6-8 weeks before the anticipated last frost date, with transplanting outdoors following the cessation of frost risk. These tomatoes thrive in moderate temperatures, ideally between 60°F and 85°F.

Harvesting is typically ready about 75-80 days after transplanting, indicated by the tomatoes' even red color and firmness. Regular watering and occasional fertilization are recommended to support healthy growth and yield. The Roma VF Paste Tomato is a superb choice for both gardeners and chefs, providing a reliable source of high-quality, flavorful tomatoes.

Planting & Care

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.
