Is this the average size tomato?

What is the yield in tomato count per plant.

I have a grown a lot of Amish tomato's but this is a very large one for paste making.... can you tell me the background on this tomato please?

Thanks

Are you sure the photo belongs to Amish Paste? There is one Amish Paste tomato variety that is commonly known to have elongated fruits.

Hi Mehmet: thanks for your question. Yes, I am sure. I grow it. Last year it had a huge crop all summer long. I used it to make spaghetti sauce and saved several batches. These are big & sweet tomatoes.

Hi Bruce:

Thank you for your question. Yes, this is actually average size and many are much larger. I do not have a count per plant but I can guess maybe 25 large tomatoes but im just guessing. I had to use two trellises to hold up the branches. Unfortunately i do not have background except it is heirloom. The seeds were a gift from a older woman i know who has also grown it many years. Everything in ky garden is organic. I use worm tea and worm castings to fertilize.

Hmm...

That is not a paste tomato D Garden. More like a beefsteak varietal. Too big for a slicer too, though there are some large ones.

The fruit count is in line with a beefsteak type tomato too. Its not a paste tomato though, even if you used it in that fashion.

Do you have a picture of the tomato sliced open?

Carnack, thank you for your continued questions. I will not argue with you and just say that it is. I do not have other pictures, unfortunately. However, I will keep this in mind for this next crop. Thanks again!
