Paste and Plum Varieties for 2019
*SOLD OUT* Amish Paste (80 days) Amish heirloom discovered in Wisconsin. A large paste variety that is extremely tasty and excellent for canning, sauces and salsa. Is also excellent eaten fresh. Meaty with few seeds. Indeterminate.
*SOLD OUT* Ernie’s Plump (80 days) An Italian saucer tomato that cooks down to the reddest, richest, most flavourful sauce ever! But just as delicious straight out of the garden. 8-12 oz fruits are a most unique shape: “plump” double pears with a tiny blossom scar. Extreme producer. A very popular plum type.
*SOLD OUT* Kenosha Paste (80 days) Red paste type fruit, 6-8 oz. High yield with outstanding excellent flavour, very meaty with few seeds. Indeterminate.
Orange Banana (85 days) An abundance of 3”-4” paste tomatoes that have an incredible tangy sweetness. We eat these fresh, and use them for sauces and salsas. They also keep well, and ripen well in the house. Green tomatoes harvested at last frost will ripen in the house until December! Indeterminate.
Rocky (75 days) An incredibly large paste tomato, each meaty fruit growing to 6” long. Full flavoured, they are perfect for sauces, but delicious enough to eat fresh. Indeterminate.
Roma (75 days) Long renowned for delicious sauces and pastes, the classic Roma tomato has a heavy yield, meaty flesh with few seeds, and excellent taste and texture. Compact vines. Determinate.
San Marzano (78 days) This Italian heirloom traced back to the 1700s is perhaps the best known paste tomato in the Italian community. A compact and prolific producer of bright red, 3 inch fruit over a long season, this plum type tomato has heavy walls with few seed so it’s great for tomato sauce. The San Marzano tomato is reputed to be the only tomato that can be used for sauce on a true Neapolitan pizza. Indeterminate.
Striped Roman (75 days) A beautiful orange-red paste tomato, 4-6” long with wavy yellow stripes. Meaty with good flavour; excellent for sauces. Indeterminate.
Teton de Venus (65 - 75 days) We have grown this variety for over fifteen years and use it for salsa and sauces. The excellent sweet taste, however, means that it often finds its way into salads as well. The large paste-type fruit is juicy and the large plant is very productive. Indeterminate.
