Roma VF

75 days, semi-determinate —'Roma VF' has regular-leaf plants that produce plum-shaped, bright red, paste-type tomatoes. The fruit average about two ounces and have a high solids to juice ratio making them ideal for paste, sauces or puree. Adapted for the United States and Canada, it was originally introduced in 1963.

Bred by the Joseph Harris Seed Company of Rochester, New York, 'Roma VF' has an interesting pedigree. It is a stabilized cross (open-pollinated) between the original 'Roma' variety and 'California Red Top VR 9'. Where 'Roma' had fusarium wilt resistance, the addition of the 'California Red Top VR 9' to the line gives this variety its verticillium resistance. There are approximately 20 seeds per packet, and there are about 80 to 90 seeds per 0.25 gram.
Old reliable
It was a bad year for tomatoes in my area. Many gardeners didn't get a harvest at all. I did and most of it was this tomato. It gave me firm, medium-sized, meaty tomatoes, just like it always does. Good ol' classic Roma. Tasty raw or cooked and easy to grow. The vines are not huge and didn't require pruning. A small cage or even a bean pole is sufficient, but it still puts out lots of fruit. At least mine did.
