Amish Paste Slow Food USA - Ark of Taste Certified Naturally Grown Seed

74 days, indeterminate — This family heirloom dates back to the late 1800s. 'Amish Paste' is great for canning and sauces. Its fruit are bright red, plum-shaped, weigh about eight ounces, are borne on the plants in clusters of two to four, and are mild flavored making them also suitable for fresh slicing.

This variety is a bit juicier and seedier than true paste types. The plants are wispy, somewhat sprawling, and not very robust. However, 'Amish Paste' remains one of the most popular heirloom tomato varieties. Each packet contains approximately 20 seeds.

Great producer. Great taste.
Great producer. Great taste. Will buy double last years seeds! 5 star rating not high enough.

Great producer, great taste
I have a small garden where disease problems are inevitable--please keep that in mind when reading. Now, on to the review: I grew these, Cherokee Purple, Goliath, and Old Brooks in containers in the only sunny spot on my patio, which is unavoidably close to where I grew peppers last year. All were affected by early blight, and all but Cherokee Purple eventually came down with anthracnose as well. The Amish Paste also quickly developed Septoria leaf spot, which didn't affect the others. However, they kept producing tasty tomatoes anyway! My family and I loved the taste and meatiness of these tomatoes--they're great for making pizza by just slicing onto the crust, no sauce making necessary. I can see why the description says "not very robust," but I wouldn't call them that, not for my location. Not as wonderful as Cherokee Purple or Stupice - but still in my top 5. Will grow again.

Great universal tomato
These are a great tomato. They had great strong stems and the fruit were huge. I struggle with blossom end rot every year and these did not have any issues.
