The Roma Paste Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) is prized for its use in tomato paste and sauces. Roma produces a large harvest of thick-walled, meaty, bright red, egg-shaped tomatoes about 3 Inches Long and with few seeds. Paste, plum, Roma, pear, processing, saladette, and sauce, all names applied to this class of tomato, are varieties that are typically meatier and less juicy than other types, making them the best tomatoes for canning, sauces, salsa, and dehydrating. With their lower juice content, sauce-making from these tomatoes takes half the time of salad types and, with their higher soluble solids and viscosity, the flavor intensity is doubled. Paste tomatoes are also the best type of tomatoes for fresh cooking. Johnny's offers indeterminate and determinate varieties, in both organic and conventional seed.
