Amish Paste Tomato VTO-5740



Outstanding flavor raw as well as cooked--

selected for the Slow Food Ark of Taste.

Meaty long red fruits from August til frost on vigorous vines.

Mid-season, indeterminate. Tolerant of dim light and cooler summers--good for slightly shaded areas, but does very well in heat and sun also. The tomato in the picture was actually climbing a small plum tree!

BOTANICAL NAME: Solanum lycopersicum


Start in flats or pots 2 months or so before setting out. Transplant into well-composted soil after danger of frost is past. Set plants several inches deeper than in the pot-they will root along the stem. Greedy feeder-needs ample amounts of compost or decomposed manure. Needs lots of potassium, phosphorous, but not as much nitrogen. Needs calcium to prevent blossom-end rot; use gypsum or bone meal if necessary. Keep soil most in dry weather with periodic, deep watering and mulch.
