MARTINOS ROMA TOMATO (heirloom)

HEIRLOOM Determinate. Unusual among old tomato varieties, this 2 ounce paste tomato will supply you with hundreds of fruits. They are borne in clusters of 4 to 6 and seem immune to the blossom end rot that plagues the larger paste varieties. Yields begin in early midseason. Makes a truly fine sauce. 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.
