B.C KO T

Det., regular leaf, plum-shaped red fruit with firm and solid flesh and small seed locules. Good for cooking, marinating, or canning.

Seed source:

CV Thompson & Morgan 08

Year grown: 2015

Location: Zone 7b, PNW, Anmore, BC, Canada (760 ft above sea level)


ID DE M

These were very, very compact, and wanted to stay that way. New foliage growth would grow over itself. The fruits were nippled. About 70 days to maturity (and they produced until it frosted). Very, very productive. Decent taste. Maybe 2.5 to 3 inches long by up to an inch wide. We grew two plants (and transplanted in early May or late April with tomato waterwells over them to protect them from frost).

Seed source:

The plants were purchased at The Home Depot in Ontario, Oregon in 2014 (the plants had bonnieplants.com tags)

Year grown: 2014

Location: New Plymouth, Idaho



History

  • Developed by the Plant Industry Station, Beltsville, Maryland in the 1950s from a cross of San Marzano, Pan American, and Red Top.
  • Description from 1958 Gleckler Seed Catalog:
"A very important new tomato development at the Plant Industry Station, Beltsville, Maryland. Final selection came from progenies of crosses of San Marzano, Pan American, and Red Top. Vine and fruit characteristics resemble Red Top, but much more productive and slightly larger San Marzano type fruit. There has been great need in the past for a wilt resistant paste tomato in areas where infestations of fusarium wilt has been a problem. Roma fruit ripens evenly to a deep red color. Interior is extremely high in solids, making it excellent for processing whole, for manufacture of pulp or fortifying soup stocks. The mild flavor, few seeds and solid paste type flesh make Roma fine for home use in fresh eating and salads."
