Amish Paste Tomato Plants produce sweet, juicy fruits with few seeds and a full, rich flavor that doesn't cook away. They are excellent for making tomato sauces, salsas, or tomato paste, justifying their namesake. They are also a versatile addition to salads, sandwiches, or simply eaten fresh straight from the vine. This heirloom tomato is thought to have originated in the late 1800's with the Amish people in Wisconsin. The tomatoes are a deep red color and have a slightly irregular shape, ranging from plum-shaped to oxheart-shaped, averaging 8-12 ounces in weight. With their large size and flavorful flesh, Amish Paste tomatoes are a valuable addition to any home garden.
Growing Tips: Watch for green caterpillars that will eat the leaves and fruits, hand pick and destroy as you find them. To prevent blight and other foliar diseases, it is important to avoid watering the leaves and to use Serenade Garden Disease Control or a copper fungicide as needed. Avoid planting in areas that, potatoes, peppers, and eggplants were grown the previous year.
