Gorgeous plums are the epitome of what makes a tomato great for paste and sauces: large, smooth, meaty, with little core and very few seeds. They are very solid and fragrant, with a rich, well-balanced flavor. And they are superb for fresh eating as well. The plants are robust and unstintingly productive. Amos Coli was 86 years old when he approached Brad Gates at the 2012 Heirloom Exposition, offering to share this incredible tomato that he had been growing for some 60 years. Amos in turn had received it from a Santa Clara Valley, California, resident who had grown it for some 50 years before that—making this variety well over a century old! Brad says, “This is the best paste tomato I’ve ever had. I am glad to help Amos in seeing this great variety live forever.”

What are the pros? Perfect for sauce

What are the cons? Not a heavy producer

Review:

This is the absolute perfect sauce tomato - big, meaty, easy to peel, light on seeds, cherry red. If you plan on making sauce, add this to your repertoire.

What are the pros? Yield and easy to grow

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

I grew two of these plants this year and so did a friend. These are the biggest paste tomatoes you'll ever come across. Behaves like an heirloom and grows very viney and quickly. I would recommend something 6ft tall to grow these on.

What are the pros? Large

What are the cons? Pastey

Review:

It's paste texture makes it unappealing for fresh eating. Did not have a very productive vine. Not the fastest to ripen.

What are the pros? Huge, Taste Great

What are the cons? Plant needs a lot of support

Review:

The other reviews sum this tomato up perfectly. It is a great sauce/paste tomato, the fruits are huge, biggest tomatoes I've ever grown but the fruit do mature a little later in the season. At first it doesn't look like much but the tomatoes get bigger and bigger to the point where I was struggling to stop the branches from breaking under the strain of the weight, I think this plant would be better off trellised, the branches certainly liked vining across the ground to tangle with the nearby squashes. I'm going to grow them again but next time give them a lot more support early on. As a side note the leaves are very different from other tomatoes I've grown, they have a long droopy vine-like shape to them and hang down from the plant. Very pretty.

What are the pros? Huge tomato, great taste

What are the cons? Late maturity

Review:

I started several of these and had good germination. Ended up growing two of the plants myself. It was not a great year for tomatoes as we had a cool summer, but I did eventually get some tomatoes in late September in the Pacific Northwest. It was worth the wait! The tomatoes have a great taste and very few seeds. Perfect for fresh eating or canning. The two plants I grew were very different, so there may be some inconsistency in the seeds, but I feel like I got a better deal! The one was as described and I barely am starting to get tomatoes off of it at the end of September/beginning of October. The other one, however, looks like a beefsteak tomato on the outside, but when you slice into it it is like a paste tomato and totally meaty. This plant also matured earlier by a week or two, but that may have been because it had better sun. I'm going to keep seeds from the "beefsteak paste" tomato and see if I can get more of those!
