3437-LG  Solanum lycopersicum

(Indeterminate. 80 days.)

A Hope Seeds exclusive. Our new favourite paste tomato! The seed started with Bernardo, an Italian grocery-store owner in BC who graciously shared it with friends. Eventually it surfaced on the East Coast, and our friend Niki Clark of Nikian Farm passed on this tomato treasure. Bernardo’s Paste performs equally well in the greenhouse and the field. Huge clusters of 8"-long, 3"- to 4"-wide, pointy paste tomatoes. Balance of flesh and juice; few seeds. Great taste for fresh eating and canning.

3411-CO  Solanum lycopersicum (Indeterminate. 85 days.) I had lost my faith in Amish Paste, but it ripened at the last second and ended up being the best canner in 2008. Not too juicy, not too seedy—good for lazy sauce-makers like me, who can’t be bothered to take out the seeds! Fruits are red, oval-shaped, and range in size... more details
