The Amish Paste heirloom tomato as the name implies is a plum tomato of Amish origins that is commonly used for cooking, although it's sweet enough to eat fresh. The Amish Paste tomato is reputed to have originated in the 1870s with the oldest Amish community in Wisconsin.
Climbing (indeterminate), requires staking. Plants produce high yields of red 'plum type' tomatoes that grow up to 10cm. Rich and sweet flavour. Few seeds. Ideal for bottling, sauces, cooking and drying.
Adaptable to most soils but produces the best fruit in a deep free-draining soil with consistent moisture in an open sunny position. Protect from strong winds, support with stakes when required. Sensitive to frosts.
Sow 6mm deep. For best results grow in seed raising trays of a quality seed raising mix. Keep warm and moist. Transplant when 5-7cm high.
