1. Italian Roma Tomato Seeds
Determinate. The Italian Roma is the standard of all paste tomatoes, serving as the parent crop to countless other paste-style variations grown all over the world. While the Roma VF has become the commercial standard, the heirloom Italian Roma boasts a more complex fruit with a much darker red color than most paste or processing tomatoes. Italian Roma is preferred for its thin skin and tender meat which makes for a world class cooking experience.
2. Amish Paste Tomato Seeds
Indeterminate. The Amish Paste tomato is a plum-style 19th century American heirloom that is often compared to the Italian Roma and San Marzano type tomatoes. Amish Paste is native to shorter growing seasons of Wisconsin and had been traditionally grown for more than a century by the local Amish communities of Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. Ideal for sauces and purees, the Amish Paste is also plenty thick enough to use as a slicing tomato.
3. San Marzano Tomato Seeds
Determinate. Often compared to the famous Roma tomato in terms of shape, size, and flavor, the San Marzano is a traditional Italian cultivar commercially produced throughout the 20th century. Introduced in 1926, the San Marzano has become an Italian staple where it is known locally in Valle del Sarno as ‚“Pomodoro San Marzano dell'Agro Sarnese-Nocerino‚. The San Marzano tomato is noticeably thinner, sweeter, and far less acidic than the classic Roma.
4. Roma VF Tomato Seeds
Determinate. A recent improvement to the celebrated Roma tomato, Roma VF benefits from all the advantages of being a Roma-style paste tomato, boasting higher tolerance to Verticillium (V) and Fusarium (F). Firm, meaty, and plum-shaped 3-4‚ long fruit, Roma has long since been the preferred tomato for homemade sauces, pastes, purees, juices, and canning. Roma tomatoes boast a slightly higher amount of acidity and blend well with some sweeter San Marzano or Amish Paste.
5. Red Pear Tomato Seeds
Indeterminate. Though most famously cultivated as a Yellow Pear, the tenacious, easily grown Red Pear is a delightful variation to the internationally celebrated crop. Just like traditional Yellow Pear, the Red Pear produces the same delicious 1-2‚ long teardrop-shaped tomatoes. Red pear tomatoes are thin-skinned paste tomatoes ideal for any number of culinary fares. Pear tomato is currently a featured crop maintained outside the Smithsonian Institute.
6. Yellow Pear Tomato Seeds
Indeterminate. Golden yellow teardrop-shaped 1-2‚ long heirloom cherry tomatoes, Yellow Pear tomato is widely known to be one of the sweetest tomatoes with the least amount of acidity. Still considered a smaller cherry tomato, the Yellow Pear has a noticeably rounder and pear-shaped body. Despite the tomato being native to the Americas of the New World, the Yellow Pear was first developed and marketed in Europe towards the end of the 18th century.
