The Amish Paste heirloom tomato as the name implies is a plum tomato of Amish origins that is commonly used for cooking, although it's sweet enough to eat fresh. The Amish Paste tomato is reputed to have originated in the 1870s with the oldest Amish community in Wisconsin.
The Amish are one of the larger "paste" varieties of tomato, its fruit growing from 150-350 grams. It varies widely in shape, from "oxheart" to plum, and though coreless, is somewhat seedier and sweeter than normal paste cultivars. They tend to ripen 80 to 85 days after planting.
Adaptable to most soils but produces the best fruit in deep free-draining soil with consistent moisture in a sunny position. Protect from strong winds, support with stakes when required.
