Amish paste tomato is an heirloom indeterminate. These tall indeterminate plants will need support as it produces bountiful crops of 8 to 12-ounce fruits. They are richly flavoured, sweet, meaty and just juicy enough to make the very best sauces, soups and even ketchup! Shapes can vary from standard to oxheart shape.
Sow indoors 1 to 2 cm deep, 2 to 3 months before transplanting outside. After seedlings have set 2 sets of true leaves transplant to small containers until the plant is established. It is now safe to transplant it once more to its final home. Containers work well for many tomatoes, allowing them to be moved in inclement weather. Does very well in a greenhouse but not required. Outdoor sowing requires direct sowing after last frost and thin to suit your space. Good drainage. Full Sun (6 to 8 hours) and even moisture are recommended for best results.
Developed by the Amish in the late 1800s.
