Tomato: Roma 🍅
Approximately 20 Seeds
Widely regarded as the king of Italian tomatoes, The Roma is great for using in sauces, but is equally nice in summer salads. This mid-season plum variety produces 3" pear shaped fruits, which are all perfectly red.
- Sow in spring 1/16 inch deep. Germination takes around 6-14 days at 65-75F.
- Transplant the seedlings when large enough to handle into 3 inch pots. Grow on under cooler conditions and when about 8 inches tall, either plant in their growing position in the greenhouse or gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions and plant out 18 inches apart in a warm and sunny spot in moist, fertile well drained soil and keep watered.
- Provide support and tie in regularly. Remove side shoots and restrict the plant to one main stem. In late summer remove the growing tip to hasten ripening.
