PLUM/PASTE TOMATO


Amish Paste

Red Tomato
Ind.85 days

This Wisconsin heirloom from Amish farmers in the 1870s is one of Fedco’s most ordered seed varieties. It needs a little more pampering than your usual tomato so make sure it goes in fertile soil and has plenty of space and sun. The flavor of the 6-8 ounce, bright red tomatoes is excellent for sauces and canning and I know a lot of people who love it for sandwiches too.

Black Icicle

Purple-Black Tomato Ind.80 days

I am re-introducing this black paste tomato because I had several market customers ask for it again. One of the most beautiful of all tomatoes, this one actually sparkles like an icicle! The flavor is rich like most black tomatoes, with a hint of smokiness.

Gransasso

Red TomatoInd.80 days

This great old Italian tomato is wonderful for making a meaty tomato sauce. It comes from the area near Gran Sasso – a mountain in the Abruzzo region of central Italy.This is a large, 6-12 oz., plump red pear shaped tomato with vertical ribs. The fruits are meaty and taste good when fresh but are usually used as a cooking tomato – great for roasting, juice making, salsa, or sauce. Production is good on vigorous plants, even in heat and right up until the end of the season.

PLUM/PASTE TOMATO FAVE


Heart Shaped Speckled Roman

Red Tomato Ind.80 days

A couple of years ago, John Swenson gave me some seeds he had saved that he thinks might be a cross between his own Speckled Roman and a large plum shaped tomato. The resulting fruit has the same beautiful striping, delicious flavor and smooth texture of Speckled Roman, but the size is larger and the shape is like a large oxheart tomato These plants are not totally standardized yet, so you might get some regular Speckled Roman shapes.

Juliet

These tomatoes are larger than a grape tomato but smaller than a Roma. They are wonderfully sweet, crack resistant, and super prolific. Cut in half and dry in a food dehydrator for sweet and tangy snacks. Also delicious fresh in salads, salsas, and sauce.

Orange Banana

Orange Tomato Ind.85 days

Fedco catalog says this tomato wins their paste contest every year! I love them on sandwiches and in salad—so sweet and they have a silky smooth texture. Beautiful cylindrical golden fruits are 3-4 inches long. Not as heavy a cropper as some, but worth growing for the flavor.
