ROUGHWOOD/EFN EXCLUSIVE. The Nistru is a delicious, slightly-pink paste tomato from Moldova named with the Moldavian/Romanian word for the Dniester River. It makes great sauce, paste, or juice, but is also quite good raw. The fruit are relatively small compared to other plum tomatoes, but the determinate plant makes up for this in flavor and by producing fruit in abundance. It was collected in Moldova in 1981 by the N.I. Vavilov Institute. This tomato is bound to become popular. Grown ecologically in New Jersey by the Experimental Farm Network.
