It takes at least 6 Roma tomato plants to produce enough fruit to make sauce.

How to Grow Roma Tomatoes

If you are starting the plants from seed, plant the seed at least 8 weeks prior to your last frost date. Growing Tomatoes from Seed will provide you with instructions for raising tomato plants from seed.

Set the plants out into a garden bed which has been amended with plenty of organic compost. Plant them deep. Bury a few inches of stem. This will cause the plant to form a larger, sturdier root system.

Romas are determinate or bush tomatoes so you can use large tomato cages to support them. They also make good container growing tomatoes but you would have to prepare a lot of pots if you planned to use the fruit for sauce.

This is one of the easiest tomato varieties to grow in the home garden. All it needs is sun, regular water and well composted soil.
