The Roma VF Tomato is a classic sauce and paste tomato that is perfect for canning and cooking. This heirloom tomato is compact, yet produces an incredible yield of bright red, richly flavored tomatoes that weigh 2-4 ounces each. The traditional paste-type fruits are meaty with few seeds and not much juice, making them perfect for sauces and stews. But don't let that fool you - these tomatoes are also delicious enough to eat fresh! So whether you're looking to add some home-grown flavor to your next batch of tomato sauce or just want a juicy, fresh tomato to slice up for your salad, the Roma VF Tomato is the perfect choice.

Start seed indoors 5-7 weeks before last frost. Provide plants with plenty of light to avoid tall, spindly tomato transplants. A sunny south-facing window or grow lights will be sufficient. A heat mat helps to speed up the germination process. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 65-85 degrees. A few weeks before transplanting time, harden off plants by exposing them to an increasing number of hours outdoors each day. Delay transplanting until your soil has thoroughly warmed up in the spring; usually about 2 weeks after the your average last frost date. Set transplants in the ground and cover stem so that only 2-3 sets true leaves are exposed, resulting in a stronger root system.
