There are Slicing Tomatoes. There are Snacking, Cocktail and Salad Tomatoes. And then there are Roma Tomatoes, also called Plum Tomatoes. Romas are their own “use category,” ideal for cooking, sauces and salsas. They are smaller than round tomatoes and have an egg shape, and the varieties often grown during local summer season are elongated. Roma Tomatoes are meaty and have less gel inside than larger round varieties. This makes them perfect for dicing for use as an ingredient or topping. Romas can be easily cut into wedges to add to salads, can be stuffed and intensify with roasting. Save the flavor! Do not refrigerate Tomatoes until after you cut them.
