About Amish Paste

‘Amish Paste’ is an old family heirloom tomato from Amish farmers in Medford, Wisconsin. The history of this tomato goes back to the 1870s. Tom Hauch of ‘Heirloom Seeds’ received the seeds of this beautiful and prolific variety from the Amish who lived near Lancaster in Pennsylvania and shared them with ‘Landis Valley Museum’ in Lancaster. It was donated to the Germplasm Resources Information Network (GRIN)* in 2010 from the USA (the accession number for this variety is G 33010).
‘Amish Paste’ is an indeterminate, regular, and wispy leaf tomato plant with an outstanding yield of red, medium to large (4-9oz./120-250g) plum-shaped fruits. It is not the typical paste tomato, fruits are juicier and contain more seeds than most paste-type tomatoes. The flavor is well balanced, with a rich, complex aroma. The first ripe fruits can be enjoyed in the middle of the season, about 78-80 days after transplant.

*Germplasm Resource Information Network (GRIN) documents plant, animal, and microbial collections through informational pages and searchable databases. GRIN is operated by the National Germplasm Resources Laboratory in Beltsville, MD, USA.
