Roma & Round Tomatoes

Roma Tomatoes

Brand Name-Primo Italiano

 

Good-quality Roma tomatoes will be firm, smooth-skinned and be at least pink in color. Tomatoes that are partially green will ripen if left at room temperature. With few seeds and firm, dense, meaty flesh, Romas have less water content and more pulp than other varieties. This means they break down nicely into tomato sauce and are good candidates for canning, sun- or oven-drying and making tomato paste. Sliced Roma tomato rounds work well as a pizza topping, because they hold their shape and their minimal seeds won’t make the pie soggy.

Round Tomatoes

Brand Name-Manatee River

Good quality Round Tomatoes , also called Beefsteak Tomatoes, are one of the largest varieties of tomatoes, and will be firm, smooth-skinned, and at least pink in color. Tomatoes that are partially green will ripen if left at room temperature. These big, juicy tomatoes are very flavorful, and have a meaty texture to match their name. Round tomatoes work well for sandwiches and salads, and you can even eat them fresh from harvest, like an apple.
