About Antique Roman

‘Antique Roman’ is an Italian heirloom tomato, that was first introduced in North America in the SSE 1991 Yearbook by John F. Swenson of Glencoe, Illinois, USA. He got the seed from Ann Salomon of Tweefontein Farm in New Paltz, NY, USA. Ann received the seeds from her elderly Italian neighbors.
Indeterminate, regular leaf plants are loaded with a fair amount of medium (6oz./180g), red, elongated, paste-type tomatoes, that vary in shape and size. An outstanding choice for cooking and canning – fruits are high in pectins, which gives sauces and pastes a natural thickness. Late season, about 85 days to maturity.
