Details

This tomato was given to us in 2015 with the name ‘Pete's Italian Paste.’ The plants produce smooth, perfectly oval, fat paste tomatoes. Our largest weighed in at 1 lb. 3 oz.! The tomatoes are dense, very meaty, have few seeds and almost no juice. Pete’s is a winner, though we can’t find any other information about it online.

Michigan Seeds grown on our farm Renegade Acres in Howell, MI!
