Tomato Roma Vf Seeds

Developed in the 1950s by a skilled tomato grower in Rome, Roma Vf tomatoes are a cross between San Marzano tomatoes brought by Italian immigrants to the US and a local variety. This results in a versatile, determinate tomato that produces juicy paste tomatoes perfect for both eating and cooking. These mid-sized, meaty, oblong tomatoes typically weigh between 70-80 grams and are highly resistant.

Sow the seeds indoors on a warm kitchen windowsill or a greenhouse. Sow the seeds in a pot around 0.5cm deep and cover with a thin layer of compost. Keep the pot well-watered and warm. An ideal temperature of 15 – 20C is perfect. The seedlings will start to appear after 7 – 15 days. When the seedlings are large enough to handle transplant them into individual pots. Keep them growing on in cooler but not cold conditions. If the plants get too cold they will stop growing and struggle to get going again.
