Tomato - Amish Paste Tomato

Avg seeds/pkt 48

Amish Paste tomatoes are the largest paste tomatoes I’ve ever grown and their flavor and yield match their size. Good for sauce, canning, and the usual paste tomato treatments, we enjoyed them most in sandwiches and fresh wedges with a bit of mayo, salt and pepper, and eaten over the sink.

Start indoors 6 weeks before your average last frost date. Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep and press gently for good seed-to-soil contact. Keep warm (between 70°F and 80°F) and evenly-moist for germination within 14 days. Seedlings need moist soil and at least 12-18 hours of bright light. Fluorescent lamps raised just above the top leaves should be adequate.

When outdoor nighttime temperatures are consistently over 60°F, harden-off over 7 days before transplanting every 2 feet into soil located in full sun and rich with organic matter. Stake, cage, or trellis plants, as they may reach 8 feet in height. Water deeply and regularly, and feed every few weeks with a low-nitrogen fertilizer.

Amish Paste tomatoes reach maturity after 85 days and will produce ripe, 8- to 12-ounce fruit over several weeks.
