Roma VF: The team shows

Roma VF doesn’t produce the prettiest Romas Trust me
Roma VF doesn’t produce the tastiest Romas Uh…. Bland.
Roma VF has one of the least sexy names of any of the Romas The initials are for wilt resistance – Verticillium Wilt (V) & Fusarium Wilt (F)

But on game day, Roma VF brings the whole team:

The 20 or so Roma VF in my garden plants that I started from seed have all grown uniformly and without exception, each plant is loaded with a generous quantity of fruit.
The Martinos Roma heirloom planted in the next bed has done OK, although of the three plants only one is what I would consider “robust”. However, the taste and texture is far better than the Roma VFs, making for a delicious salad tomato or just a “fresh eatin” variety. (The Romas will all be turned to sauce as intended.)

    You could try ketchup too. I am jealous you have so many toms. Rabbits or something chopped all my tomato plants in half so, I’ll be buying all mine this year.

      Remember I haven’t harvested all these yet. With my luck, I don’t discount the fact that something could still greatly reduce the harvest. 😉
