Striped Roman Paste Tomato Seeds

Artistry in Tomatoes

The Striped Roman Paste Tomato, a unique variety within the Solanum lycopersicum species, stands out for its distinctively patterned fruits. This heirloom cultivar, celebrated for its cylindrical fruits marked with bold red and yellow longitudinal stripes, is a visually striking addition to any garden.

Originating from traditional breeding practices, the Striped Roman Paste Tomato is valued for its high solid content and relatively few seeds, making it especially suited for preparing thick sauces and pastes. The fruits, typically measuring 4-6 inches in length, boast a rich flavor profile and a dense, meaty texture.

Cultivation of this variety requires full sun exposure, which is crucial for optimal fruit development. The plant exhibits an indeterminate growth habit, meaning it continues to produce fruit throughout the growing season until the first frost. It is advisable to provide support through staking or caging to manage its vigorous growth and to keep the fruits off the ground.

Harvesting should commence when the tomatoes exhibit their full coloration, indicating peak ripeness and flavor. To ensure continued production, it is recommended to harvest regularly.

This tomato variety is not just prized for its culinary attributes but also for its ornamental qualities. The Striped Roman Paste Tomato is a testament to the diversity and richness of heirloom vegetable varieties, offering both aesthetic beauty and practical utility in the kitchen.

Planting & Care

Soil and 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 and 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.
