Organic Roma Tomatoes

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.

Roma Tomato Tips

  • Select Roma Tomatoes with a vibrant red color that are free from wrinkling, black spotting, water blisters (translucent area of skin) or unhealed splits. Scars, healed splits or leaf stains on the skin will not impact your eating experience. The fruit can feel lightly firm to lightly soft, but avoid spongy feeling tomatoes.
  • Do Not Refrigerate Your Tomatoes (unless you’ve sliced them) because temperatures under the mid-50s can soften the texture and blunt the flavor. Room temperature, like on your counter out of direct sunlight, seems to work best.
