Tomato, Speckled Roman

Sale price Price $7.00 Regular price

My personal favorite! Seed Savers Exchange member John Swenson bred these tomatoes as a cross between 'Antique Roman' and 'Banana Legs.’ Speckled Romans are a truly amazing sauce tomato that doubles as a great-looking slicer for burgers and sandwiches. I love the smooth, meaty texture and standout flavor. They has a truely wild red and yellow stripped look that makes it one of the pretty tomatoes on the block.

Tomato: Truly a classic garden vegetable! There is nothing like a fresh, vine-ripened garden tomato. Tomatoes are a native to North America but have woven themselves throughout western cuisine. There are varieties specialized for almost any use you can have of them. From cherries to plum to sauce to slicing to beefsteak tomatoes there is a tomato that is right for you!

Growing Tips: Tomatoes can get quite large so give them a good 24 inches of space in the garden in order to make sure they enough light and air flow around them to stay healthy. They also like a good strong trellis to support the plant and help give them that light and air flow as well as keep their fruit clean. Tomatoes are also good feeders. Give them a healthy dose of compost before planting and nice deep mulch at planting.
