Tomato Roma VF
Highly-flavoursome, plum-shaped tomatoes ideal in Italian dishes such as pasta, sauces, pizza and curries. While Roma is an open-pollinated variety rather than a hybrid, it has been steadily improved to become fusarium wilt and verticillium-resistant (thus the VF in the name).Requires staking.
