Tomato Bush Italian Roma
Organic Heirloom Seed

80 days. An absolutely excellent heirloom tomato – firm, meaty, 3-inch oblong fruits with few seeds, on compact plants. Very productive – up to 200 tomatoes per plant! As a determinate type, most of the fruits ripen at the same time, which makes this tomato a good choice for canning. In areas with a long growing season, a second successive planting will double your harvest!

When to sow outside: Recommended for mild winter climates only: 1 to 2 weeks before average last frost and when soil temperatures are at least 60° F.

When to start inside: RECOMMENDED. 6 to 8 weeks before average last frost.

Harvesting: Harvest tomatoes when fully colored and firm. About 1 month before the average first fall frost, clip all blossoms and any undersized fruit off the plant. This will steer all the plant’s remaining energy into ripening what’s left. If you have a lot of underripe tomatoes near the end of the season, and a frost is approaching, pick them and store them indoors in a single layer away from direct sunlight to ripen.
