Martino's Roma Tomato

70-80 days. Determinate. Fantastic yields of richly flavorful plum-shaped tomatoes, on compact plants that require very little staking! Resistant to early blight, reliable for home or market gardens! The paste-type fruits weigh in at 2-3 ounces, dry-fleshed and very meaty with few seeds. Great for sauces, salsas and pastes.

What are the pros? Productive

What are the cons? SO MUCH BLOSSOM END ROT

Review:

So these plants got really bushy...they didn't get very tall but wow they had tons of suckers that eventually led to huge clusters of fruit. That said, some of the fruit is strange on the inside...like no juice, just a bunch of weird looking seeds. My mom said she liked how they tasted. I'm going to can some. I had expected massive yields when all of my plants were hit by Septoria. Waiting for them to get bigger in size before harvesting all of them. TONS of these tomatoes got blossom end rot. Way more than the other five varieties I grew. I will probably be trying a different Roma type tomato next year in this ones place. If you don't have BER issues in your garden, maybe give this one a try.

What are the pros? great taste

What are the cons? none

Review:

Heavy yield, uniform fruit, right at 70 days, no pests or disease. I started these seeds from soil cubes with 100% germination. We cooked these down & canned, very meaty as described. They have a very sweet tomato flavor with bolder acidity - a classic that is our base for all red sauces. My only comment is that these do require a trellis as a light staking would not support all the fruit. These plants are not as compact as Ten Fingers of Naples, which have more a smooth & rounded sweetness with less acidity.

Review:

This is my 2nd year growing Martino's Roma tomatoes in my straw bale garden. I planted them last year as I wanted to grow my own for canning. I made 26 jars of salsa just last night with these little guys and it is delicious! I use the Winter Sowing method to start them outside in early (March 21st this year). As I've always been told to plant more seeds than I need in case of lower germination, I always end up giving away several of these plants because of the terrific germination rate. They are HUGE producers - folks can't believe how they produce. I have never had any trouble with Martino's, with the exception of struggling to keep them tied up because of the weight of the fruit. I've never experienced any cracking, but have had the occasional blossom end rot (easy fix). Although they are listed as determinate, mine kept churning out tomatoes right up until frost last year. These are definitely a staple in my garden and highly recommeded.

Best ROMA Ever.

What are the pros? uniform, bright red, tasty!

What are the cons? need support

Review:

I married an Italian, so I must keep a Roma garden! In the ten years I researched, this ROMA turned out to be the absolute best. They are very big, bright red, very uniform. The plants do droop, even though they are short, because the fruit is so plentiful. You will be surprised by this tomato. We grew 25 plants in the worst drought in 20 years, watering only with rainwater, and still have 27 jars of sauce left in Feb. (P.S., we eat sauce once a week, at least.) Best Roma EVER.

What are the pros? Big producer, smaller plant

What are the cons? Needy

Review:

I planted these, Granny Cantrells, and Black Vernissage. Of the three varieties, these were by far the most needy. They started yellowing at even a hint of dry soil. But it was worth the extra watering and fertilizing for the huge production. I made quarts and quarts of sauce from these beauties along with the other two varieties. It was nice to have a little smaller plant versus the massive plant size of the Cantrells and Vernissage. I may do them in containers next year.
