This unique and eye-catching heirloom paste tomato was created by Seed Savers Exchange member John Swenson. He crossed the heirlooms Antique Roman and Banana Legs to get this unique coloring. The oblong red fruits are 3 wide and 5" long with orange and yellow stripes/speckles and decorative enough to keep in a basket on your kitchen counter until you are ready to cook with them. But, you will appreciate the hefty, meaty fruit with few seeds the most for the excellent flavor it has in sauce. You can also use these tomatoes fresh and sliced for sandwiches and hors d'oeuvres. Try slicing them in half lengthwise and filling them with pesto or other toppings for a creative gourmet snack or appetizer. This packet plants: 15 plants (after thinning).

Meaty TomatoesSep 03, 2011
By Pam Smith
I will be starting these inside soon. They look like a great sauce tomato. They will go out in the spring and will do well. I always have good luck with Romas and Cherry Tomato plants and seeds. They are great for keeping too and I make a chili sauce that my grandmother used to make that is waiting for these and my peppers.
