MARTINOS ROMA TOMATO (heirloom)

3

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.

Great Sauce Variety

I would have to disagree with the blossom end rot comment in the description as I got it one year, but have been growing this variety for a couple years now. All my plants are covered in these tomatoes, very prolific. Keep up on cutting out the dead leaves and pick the ripe ones and these will server you well. Mine produce all the way until frost.
