Speckled Roman is a paste-type tomato with firm fruits, around 100 grams per fruit. Elongated, firm, and smooth, red fruits with golden stripes, that store well after harvest. Crack-resistant. Perfect for cooking. Sweet tomato flavor. Probably a cross between ‘Banana Legs’ and ‘Antique Roman’. Indeterminate. 85D. 10seeds/pack
Paste-type tomatoes contain less water than "normal" tomatoes and are perfect for tomato sauce, puree, cooking, etc. The fruits are very firm and meaty and not so watery if cooked. Indeterminate tomato varieties will keep on growing the whole summer until the autumn frost. They will keep flowering and setting fruit. The sucker doesn't have to be pruned, but if not the plant will grow extremely large. 1-3 suckers could be spared along the main stem and the rest could be pruned. If not pruned at all the plant might tend to put energy into growing large instead of producing tomatoes on the main stem and the selected suckers. All indeterminate varieties could be staked or supported to avoid fruits laying on the ground.
