Amish Paste Tomato Seeds
Info: Tomato `Amish Paste is believed to be the ultimate paste tomate by many US-American growers. It comes from an Amish community in Wisconsin. The medium-sized, rather oval, red fruits are thin-skinned, fleshy with few seeds and are particularly good as pasta tomato for sauces and cooking in general. But because of their good flavour, they are also very popular for fresh consumption. The plants are large and less leafy, the tomatoes ripen relatively early.
Care: You can grow tomatoes inside the house, in a greenhouse or outdoors. Cover the seeds only slightly with soil (max. 5 mm). The optimal germination temperature is between 20 and 25°C, and germination occurs after 8 - 14 days. You can speed up the germination process if you leave the seeds to soak overnight in a damp cloth. You should wait until after the last frost to plant your chosen plants.
Tomatoes need fresh, well-fertilised, permeable soil which is kept moist (but not wet!). They should be planted in a sunny, protected place with at least 6 hours of sunlight - preferably more.
