Small compact bush. Smooth, bright red, oblong fruit growing up to 10cm long. Firm flesh with few seeds. Very good variety for cooking, bottling, and drying. Good disease resistance. A Roma tomato is a paste tomato. Paste tomatoes, like Roma tomatoes, generally have a thicker fruit wall, fewer seeds and a denser but more grainy flesh. Roma tomatoes tend to be oblong in shape and heavy for their size. The also tend to be firmer than a non-Roma or paste tomato. Roma tomatoes are determinate, which means that the fruit ripens at one time, rather than continually through the season. While they can be eaten raw, they are at their best when they are cooked.
