Picture Wanted

If you'd like to contribute your own Amish Paste tomato picture please upload via the variety opinion form. Thanks!

Eaten fresh or used to make sauces, the Amish Paste tomato is a very popular heirloom variety. It grows up to 12 ounces which is considered fairly large for a paste tomato. The fruit's interior is coreless and meaty. When sliced it reveals a solid texture. Famous for making flavorful pastes and sauces, it has award-winning taste that can be described as mildly sweet, balanced and tomatoey.

Discovered in Wisconsin, its roots go back to the Pennsylvania Amish country. The plant is an indeterminate late-season variety and its vines tend to need more support than some varieties. It is a high-yielding producer and grows fruit in clusters of two to four.

I recommend buying Amish Paste tomato seeds at TomatoFest because not only do they specialize in heirloom tomato seeds that are certified organic, but their service is great and their staff friendly.
