Speckled Roman Plum Tomato

85 days. This is one tasty Tomato. A beautiful, flesh-dense gem developed by John Swenson, Speckled Roman has 3" by 5" oblong fruits with orange-yellow striped bright red skin and a dense solid-red interior with few seeds and little gel. Its exceptional off-the-vine flavor is even more notable when reduced into sauce, and its compact, regular-leafed indeterminate vines are incredibly productive. (OP.)

Absolutely nothing compares to eating a sun-warmed, homegrown Tomato straight off the vine. This garden mainstay is easily grown and most rewarding. Start seed in a warm, bright, well-ventilated area six to eight weeks before setting out. Transplant out after the last spring frost date. To encourage stockiness, sink seedlings deeper into the well-enriched soil than you grew them - soil should cover the lowest layer of leaves. Position stakes, cages or supports at that time to avoid disturbing the plants later on. Keep soil evenly moist and well-fertilized. Once harvested, store Tomatoes at room temperature, as anything below 50°F destroys the enzyme that gives Tomatoes their flavor. When a variety is said to have determinate vines, it means that the vines top out and all of the fruit ripens at once. When a variety is said to have indeterminate vines, it means that the vines keep growing and bearing fruit until a killing frost. Deer resistant.

Average seed life: 2 years.
