Planted in early May
Available mid July until the first frost in the fall.
NEVER store these in the fridge. Their preferred storage temperature is about 55ºF (or between 10 to 15 ºC).
They’re great for salads or for canning. Canning romas should be purchased ripe. Romas are not as juicy as field tomatoes – these varieties have more pulp on the inside.
These can be frozen the same way as field tomatoes: select ripe, firm tomatoes free from decay. Wash them, seal in a zip lock bag, and put in your freezer. Next winter, take out what you need, rinse under water and remove the skins, and presto! Fresh tomatoes for soups, sauces, or any other creations.
