Heinz Super Roma Tomato
Heinz Super Roma (also known as Heinz 8009) offers all the benefits of meaty roma fruits with one additional benefit: These tomatoes have a bright crimson flesh that contains lycopene, a healthful antioxidant. Use these nutrition-rich fruits for making sauces, slow-roasting, grilling, or canning. Plants thrive in many regions, from dry desert to high humidity, and adapt well to growing in large containers. Fruits keep well on the vines and are very crack resistant.
Stake these vigorous plants for best results and easiest harvesting. Space plants 36 inches apart in conventional rows, 24 inches in intensive gardens. Tuck one plant into a half whiskey barrel. Resistant to verticillium wilt (V), fusarium wilt (F), nematodes (N), phytophthora blight (Pc), and tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV).
