Plant details

Roma VF' is a juicy, plum-shaped tomato with a deliciously different flavour. It is excellent for making ketchup, tomato paste, soups, juice, or bottling. But it is also great for eating fresh. It's almost seedlesss, very heavy cropping and disease resistant. Grow it outdoors, or in the greenhouse. It may need supporting, but is almost a bush tomato, so doesn't need the sideshoots removed. It's very heavy cropping and disease resistant.
