Black Roma tomato is an Italian plum tomato used both for canning and paste because of its slender and firm nature.
Growth: Roma tomatoes are determinate: the plants stop growing and produce a set number of fruit that all ripen within a four to six week period; rather than continually throughout the season.
Height: +70-120 cm.
Spread: +50 cm
- Tomatoes need plenty of water, soil rich in organic matter and support stakes to keep the fruit off the ground for the best fruit production.
- May be eaten raw, or cooked.
