Martino`s Roma Tomato History

Incredible yields of richly flavored roma tomatoes that weigh 2-3 ounces. The paste-type fruits are very meaty with few seeds and not much juice. Great for making sauce, salsa and paste, but also good for fresh eating. Compact plants have rugose (puckered) foliage.

Growing Tomatoes

plant tomatoes 1/4 inch deep and 1 inch apart in flats placed in a warm, sunny room. Once the seedlings grow their second set of leaves, transplant them to plastic cups. Wait until the temperature stays consistently warm before putting plants in the ground. Dig bigger holes than you think you’ll need at least 2 feet apart, setting the plants so that the lowest set of leaves sit at soil level. Soak your bed with 1 inch of water once a week, slightly more often during the height of summer. Make sure to pour the water directly on the soil, not the leaves. To increase fruit production, you should regularly prune your tomato plants.
