Wikipedia

  1. Plum tomato

    A plum tomato, also known as a processing tomato or paste tomato, is a type of tomato bred for sauce and packing purposes. It is generally oval or cylindrical in shape, with significantly fewer locules (seed compartments, usually only two) than standard round tomatoes and a generally higher solid content, making them more suitable for processing into paste. Plum tomatoes are also sometimes favored by cooks for use during the tomato off-season, as they are generally considered more amenable to handling and are therefore available in a state closer to ripe than other supermarket tomatoes.

  1. plum tomato

    A plum tomato, also known as paste or Roma tomato, is a type of tomato that is oval or cylindrical in shape. It contains fewer seeds and is less juicy than typical round tomatoes, which makes it a preferred choice for sauces, pastes, and canning. Plum tomatoes generally have a more robust flavor with a higher content of tomato solids, resulting in a denser texture.

Varieties commonly available in markets include Roma VF and San Marzano, though there are many other varieties, such as the short-season Ropreco Paste and the larger Amish Paste and Big Mama. Five hybrid cultivars grown in California constitute over 60% of total production of processing tomatoes. Small plum tomatoes are known as grape tomatoes.
