These organic Roma Tomatoes are one of the most classically used tomato varieties for pastes, sauces, and canning. Fruits reach approximately 3" and are known for being very easy to grow! This variety of tomato bears fruit heavily until frost.
Sowing: Begin sowing your seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost of spring. Plant the seeds in a flat 1/4" deep and 1" apart. Keep the flat near a sunny window or underneath grow lights and the temperature at 70-75 degrees F until germination. You will also need to make sure you're using a soil with adequate drainage and keep it moist during this process. When the second set of leaves emerges, transplant the seedlings into individual pots and bury the stems up to the lowest set of leaves to grow strongly rooted plants. Tomatoes typically cannot endure cold weather, and need to be slowly introduced to the change in weather. They should not be transplanted outside until any chance of frost has completely passed. For direct sowing, wait until the soil temperature reaches at least 70 degrees F, then plant the seedlings in full sun and very rich soil. Once your seeds sprout, bury the entire stem up to the lowest set of leaves.
