Amish Paste

Solanum lycopersicum



Full Sun

85 Days to Harvest 

8-12 oz fruit (Baseball sized)

Plants 2’-3’ apart unstaked, 1’-2’ staked


This is an heirloom variety for people who want to keep tomatoes in their life all winter long.  This medium sized tomato is full of flavor with a meaty texture. Delicious right off the vine and cooks up fabulously.  Try turning this tomato into paste, sauce, or canning them whole. Plant deep in the ground taking off the bottom leaves and pick when they turn a lovely deep red.


Tomatoes grow best in rich fertile soil with regular water. Too much nitrogen will cause plants to put on lots of leaves but delay fruiting. Staking or caging allows closer spacing, helps keep fruit off the ground and away from a number of pests, and improves air flow, helping to keep disease pressure down. Pruning will also aid in air flow and help fruit ripen earlier.
