Solanum lycopercicum.

Indeterminate tomato with regular leaf foliage.

Amish Paste is a great dual purpose tomato, and it’s one of the most popular heirloom varieties. Seed folklore traces it as an heirloom tomato grown by the Amish back in the 1800s in Wisconsin or Lancaster/PA. It is great for canning and sauces, but its also loved as a flavourful fresh slicing tomato.  

This variety bares abundant clusters of two to four plum-shaped bright red fruit, weighing about 6-8oz each. 

80-90 days

minimum 25 seeds per pack.

Tomatoes are naturally quite drought tolerant, and yields are better when grown in the ground because their root systems are adventurous and incredibly resilient.

Seed starting:

In our climate tomatoes like a head start - start seeds 6-8 weeks before the last frost (depending on your region). Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep, keeping the soil warm and moist. Once the first true leaves appear, plant up into plug trays. Plant outside in full sun once all danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed. Mulch with straw or other organic matter! 

Tomatoes will do well staked.  

Companion plants: basil, nasturtium, carrots, calendula.
