Pantano Romanesco Tomato
A dreamy slicer tomato-robust, delicious, and pleated.
Indeterminate. Upon seeing the perfectly red, deeply scalloped 10 ounce fruits, most cannot help but declare, "That's a beautiful tomato!" Indeed, Pantanto Romanesco is a contender for the Platonic Ideal of what a red tomato should look like. The flavor is quite nice, acidic and sweet, making it perfect for fresh eating and a very nice cooking tomato. Some years, Pantano Romanesco has the perfect texture of a fleshly beefsteak, in cooler summers though, some fruits can be a touch mealy, but certainly still delicious and enjoyable. Yields are quite good, and the fruits are very high-quality. In two tough summers Pantano has produced loads of unblemished, perfectly attractive fruits, on healthy vigorous vines.

Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost, then transplant outdoors to indicated spacing after all threat of frost has passed. All tomatoes benefit from staking; indeterminate varieties require it. Prune tomatoes when they reach about 24" high and are starting to produce small suckers. Keep plants from coming into contact with the soil, and water at the roots as often as possible to prevent the spread of soil borne disease. When fruit begin to become fully ripe, harvest every couple of days for the highest quality fruit. At the end of the season, harvest any fruits that have begun to take on color to ripen indoors.
