ROMA TOMATO (78 days)

Determinate. This is an excellent Italian paste type that doesn't need staking. Tomatoes are smaller and earlier than San Marzano, with nice thick flesh and good, rich tomato flavor. Blocky fruits are quite dry, but still quite tasty when eaten raw. 35 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.
