Description

Amish Paste Tomato is an indeterminate, open-pollinated variety that was originally obtained from the Amish community in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. This variety produces Roma-type tomatoes that are generally oblong, but can vary in shape from one fruit to the next. Fruits have a characteristic, red tomato color and will weigh around 8-12 ounces on average. Amish Paste Tomato is the perfect variety for all types of canning and preserving applications. They have a solid tomato flavor, but are not quite as acidic as traditional heirloom varieties. Use Amish Paste for making salsa, tomato paste and canning tomato sauces.

 

Growing Information

Tomatoes are in the nightshade family along with peppers and eggplant. Plants in the nightshade family are susceptible to blossom end rot, which is a result of a calcium deficiency. To prevent or alleviate this problem, apply pelleted gypsum at the base of the plant at bloom set. Tomatoes do best when transplanted, as the germination time can be longer than most vegetable seed. They grow very well in our heavy-duty seed starting trays. Plants should be started 4-6 weeks before the intended outdoor planting date. If conditions outside are favorable, transplants may be planted directly from our 162 cell trays. Tomatoes can produce heavy fruits and will require some form of support to keep the plant upright. We recommend using the heavy-duty tomato cages or the Florida Weave trellising technique that involves using stakes and twine along the row. This ensures that plants and fruits stay off the ground, reducing the possibility of disease and keeping fruits clean.

Best paste tomato for our heat dry climate

We live in west Texas in it gets hot (100+) and dry (months with out rain) and these tomatoes didn't miss a beat. Not only did they set fruit in 100+ temps but the size was amazing. We will be growing these every year for sure.

I grow these ever year even though they seem to produce a lot of vine, their production and can be low to average high. they seem more prone to illnesses. However I grow them becuse they are the only good tasting tomato that does not have much seeds or juice. I used them as both a slicer, salads, salsa, sauce and on sandwiches and they larger than other paste tomatoes. I grow them because they are unique in their application
