What are the pros? Fabulous Flavor & Versatility
What are the cons? None
The plant grower who initially sold me this tomato many years ago stopped offering Amish Paste Tomato plants because the public wouldn't buy it due to the different appearance of the plant itself. What a pity. These are without a doubt my favorite tomato for sauces and soups, firm - not dry - slices for sandwiches, and just for plain ol' eating off the vine. Their flavor is not too sweet or too acidic. Due to blossom-end rot, Amish Paste Tomato plants do required additions of potassium (Epsom Salts) and calcium mixed into the soil. This variety bears the heaviest fruit though-out the season. Great eating!

What are the pros? Persistent, tough
I always assumed tomatoes were annuals. People grow them for a season. Then clean up by putting wads of old plants on the compost heap. Last year I started several Amish Pastes-- too many for my own use so I gave the extras to my son who promptly neglected them. Most died except for one straggling, stubborn individual. This spring he brought it back to me and asked if I'd like to try to keep it going. I repotted it in a bigger pot with premium soil, crushed egg shells and Epsoms salts. It has taken off like a rocket. I water it copiously, trained it up a trellis, and stood by to see what would happen. It has already given me two beautiful.delicious fruits and has more developing
I named it Methusela. It is now 16 months old. We are in east central costal Florida so frost isn't much of a problem. I am interested in seeing just how long it will keep going
I can attest to its strength, determination, and very delicious fruit and will grow more from seed this year..

What are the pros? Large,delicious,Blite resistan
What are the cons? Slower to ripen
Tomatoes are my favorite ,I've grown many different varieties each year searching for the best tomato for my area, and so far this is the first to stand out ,it didn't get blite until the end of the growing season witch had no affect on production, it is frost resistant , and most importantly its large and crack resistant, lasts for about a week of vine and is so delicious eating fresh like an apple.
