Large, high crimson fruits are meaty with few seeds.  While they have good acid, they are sweet, too. They are exetremely fragrant when sliced (this is always my first clue of a great tasting tomato is about to be experienced). An ideal candidate for making deep red colored sauce, as opposed to that Campbell's condensed orangey colored stuff.


Plants are very productive and seemingly disease resistant and drought tolerant.

HISTORY: During the summer of 2015 Marty Leonard brought with him to Tomato Fest seeds for a variety that he called 'Old European Roma' (because of the meatiness, he said) that he had been growing for the last 28 years. He obtained the original seed from a female co-worker who worked with him at HAP Health Insurance, in downtown Detroit, in either 1986 or '87. The co-worker actually lived in Ontario, Canada and commuted to Detroit. As Marty recalls, she obtained seed from her uncle who was either Polish or Czech.


Sold in a 3.5" pot.
