Paste tomatoes have less juice 

and are excellent for drying as well as canning.

Paste tomatoes are bred to make smooth sauce without too much cooking.

 If you can or freeze tomato sauce, (or make fresh sauces and salsas) this is what you want. They also dry exceptionally well, and tend to be fast to pick. These varieties tend to be less juicy and easier to dry or turn into paste.
