Roma VF

Two plants, that's all. Two Roma tomato plants produced 40 pounds of fruit! Yes, I'm glad - I love this tomato - but when 40 pounds of fruit come in at the same time, one has to be ready to move!

Roma's a beautiful tomato; great for sauce, great for canning whole, great for drying.

It's an easy plant, too. Though the seed has been improved, it's not a hybrid. It's an open-pollinated variety, so it will re-seed. What does VF mean? It means that it's resistant to verticillium and Fusarium wilt.
