TM802A - Super Italian Paste
These premium Italian heirloom paste tomato seeds produce lots of reddish orange 6"elongated fruits. Super Italian paste roma tomato seeds produce big (10 oz) firm tomatoes on a vine. Meaty flesh, with very little juice and few seeds, they are ideal for sauces and tomato paste and renowned the world over as a "Primo" paste tomato. Their sweet flavour imparts rich taste to your cooking but they are low in acid so add lemon juice to bring down the pH in foods to be canned. Because they are vines, they do not all ripen at once so plant several and stagger your sauce making. These fruits hold well after ripening.

How To Grow
Summer-ripened tomatoes are a good source of vitamin C and beta-carotene. The lycopene in the tomatoes is an anti-oxidant, but is only released when the tomatoes are cooked. They also contain compounds that block cancer-causing nitrosamines. We use the convention of Bush to mean determinate (fruit set more or less all at once on short plants). Vine means indeterminate (fruit sets over a longer time on tall-growing plants). Follow along with this handy How to Grow Tomatoes Guide and grow food.!
