SPECKLED ROMAN TOMATO (81 days)

2

Indeterminate Developed by John Swenson, this tomato is a cross between Antique Roman and Banana Legs. The fruit are quite uniform and we noticed few disease problems. About 3 inches by 5 inches in size and quite heavy. The red color is flecked with short attractive orange stripes. The dense tomatoes are great for paste or processing, but flavor is so good you'll also want to eat them fresh. 25 seeds.

PLANTING:

Indoors- 6 weeks before last frost, 1/4” deep with soil temperatures 75 degrees. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant out 24-36” apart after last frost when soil is 55-60 degrees and night temperatures are over 45 degrees.

Harvest- When fruit is red (or color of the variety planted) and firm.

Tips- Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost, mulch and provide even moisture. Plant deeper than they were growing in the containers as it makes a stronger roots system. Apply a light compost tea every few weeks. Do not apply excessive nitrogen, which can promote excessive foliage and poor fruit set.

Speckled Roman Tomato

My wife and I have grown this tomato for many years. Originally we chose it based on the description of the fruit in the catalog. It has become a mainstay in our Newton, MA garden. The plants are good producers and the fruit is very attractive, but the taste is what sets it apart from other Roma style tomatoes. We often serve them sliced with a little olive oil and basil. They have a sweet flavor that is better than other tomatoes of this style. We hope that you continue to offer these in your catalog for years to come.
