Amos Coli Tomato

         
 
6 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
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? Healthy plant, few seeds

What are the cons? Slow maturity

Review:

Amos Coli was a star in my garden this year! Hearty germination. I (unknowingly) had a super hot seedling mixture this year, but these seeds thrived in spite of it. Super healthy plants, MASSIVE fruit, few seeds. Prone to some cracking and catfacing on the shoulders, but I blame the inconsistent weather more than the plant itself. Slow to mature, but definitely worth the wait! Made for excellent canning tomatoes for sauce, paste, crushed tomatoes and ketchup. Will DEFINITELY become a staple tomato in my garden.

Huge paste tomato

EarlyMaturity 2.5
 

What are the pros? Meaty super large

What are the cons? Low production and ripening

Review:

My Amos Coli vine started out super weak, but changed and had high vigor as it matured. The yield has been very low and ripening is also slow. I still have the same tomatoes ripening I had on the vine originally. That being said, the tomatoes which have ripened are enormous and of excellent quality. Today I picked 8 and they filled my basket almost half way up. These are on average 14 ounces, super large for a paste. I will try them again next year as a secondary paste and see if the prodution is higher.

Absolutely growing these again

What are the pros? Huge Delicious Plentiful

What are the cons? Slow to mature

Review:

Absolutely loved these! Softball sized so heavy I need to rethink my support system next year. The meatiest most flavorful paste/sauce type we grew this year and with very few seeds...everyone loved these! So much so a lot of them were sliced for sandwiches. We didn't have an disease issues, a little cracking but that was due to our crazy summer weather. 100% recommend and they are already on my re-order list.

What are the pros? Sauce canning

What are the cons? None so far

Review:

This is my first time growing this variety. I don't use and chemicals on my plants but this plant gets huge and produces tons of big tomatoes. My largest ones weight just over a pound each. I'm very happy with the results and I will continue to grow this variety.

Terrible summer great tomato
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 3.0
 

What are the pros? Huge vines, no disease

What are the cons? slight cracking

Review:

We had an awful summer. Rained about 4 times from early June to early August and we were into the upper 90s in June. Plus, we have terrible fungus problems in this area, and high humidity. I didn't think at first that this one was a paste tomato because of the size of the tomato and the vine. I checked my order and decided this plant had to be Amos Coli. It was 7 feet tall, sprawling habit, huge fruit. The only problem it had was cracking at the top, which I'm sure was due to weather, and slight soft spot on the bottom if left on the vine too long. Ripens better when picked before 100% ripe. Excellent flavor and few seeds. I will grow this one next year too!
