80 days. Many seeds savers believe this is the ultimate paste tomato. Giant, blocky Roma-type tomatoes have delicious red flesh that is perfect for paste and canning. World class flavor and comes from an Amish community in Wisconsin. Image provided by www.abundantacres.net

What are the pros? Minimal BER

What are the cons? None

Review:

I'm a newbie in gardening. On my second year, this tomato was the most encouraging from all the varieties I tried. Fruit were almost a pound . Keeps producing fruit until the very end of the season. We had several 110 degree temp last year but it never had any effect on this variety.

What are the pros? Heavy producer, great sauce

What are the cons? Not wilt-resistant

Review:

Like many others, I loved growing Amish Pastes, especially after fighting blossom end rot with San Marzanos for so long. The Amish Pastes grew like gangbusters, hardly any BER, and produced very heavily early in the season, before being the first to give in to what turned out to be fusarium wilt. I grew these for another friend, who did not have wilt, and he praised them as well for productivity, lack of BER, and the great sauce they make.

What are the pros? Huge fruit, high productivity

What are the cons? none

Review:

Every autumn, we make homemade tomato sauce on Saturdays for about 4-5 weeks in row, and in the past we've grown Romas (both hybrid and heirloom) and San Marzano. Our 7 Amish Paste plants this year blew every other paste tomato we've grown out of the water. The fruits were huge (up to a full pound) and so dry-fleshed that we didn't have simmer down the sauce before bottling. The flavor was richer and a little more tart than modern varieties, which I thought improved our sauce. In the past we had to throw whatever tomato was ripe into the sauce to fill up a batch (20 pints), but this year we had enough from the Amish Paste that I was able to make sauce from it and save the Brandywines for tomato soup. Delicious!

What are the pros? Late productivity boom

What are the cons? Blossom end rot susceptible

Review:

Ok flavor, productivity was terrible. We planted several varieties of tomatoes and the Amish paste was the only one that has issues with blossom end rot. Late in the season it seemed to hit its stride. As a side by side though the mortgage lifter made sauce that was much tastier and had the added benefit of being much tastier as a slicer tomato. I don't think the marginally lower moisture ratio was worth the sacrifice in flavor.

What are the pros? Good size

What are the cons? Disease fast

Review:

The size of these was impressive but our summer was so hot they just never were able to ripen. The one factor that would make me not plant these again was that they diseased almost immediately when my other varieties did not.
