About Roma tomatoes

Roma tomatoes are a relatively new addition to the produce market. This popular tomato appeared around 1955 as a hybrid between the Pan American tomato and San Marzano tomato. Other names for Roma tomatoes include paste, Italian plum, saladette, and pear tomato. Roma tomatoes are slender and egg-shaped. They are meatier and have much less juice and fewer seeds than other tomato varieties. Romas are known for their fresh, earthy flavor. 

You'll find several varieties of Roma tomatoes on supermarket shelves, including the following:
  • Red: Red Romas are the most common in the supermarket.
  • Orange and Yellow: Orange or yellow Romas have a milder flavor than red Romas.
  • Baby and Dwarf: These Romas have the same shape, flavor, and meatiness as other varieties, but the fruits are much smaller. Baby Romas grow on a full-size plant, while dwarf Romas grow on a compact, bush-like plant.
  • Midnight: Recently introduced to the supermarket, this deep-purple or black Roma is rich in anthocyanins.


Many of the tomatoes in the supermarket are grown in Mexico or the United States. Look for Roma tomatoes throughout the year, but catch them at their peak during the summer months.

FAQs About Roma Tomatoes

Store ripe Roma tomatoes on your kitchen counter out of direct sunlight. Use ripe tomatoes within a few days. Ripe Romas can be stored in the refrigerator to slow down spoilage without a significant loss of flavor or texture. Don't refrigerate unripe tomatoes. Refrigeration causes the tomatoes to become mealy and flavorless. 

Roma tomatoes freeze well for later use in soups and sauces. For long-term storage, consider canning your Roma tomatoes. Canning is a great way to preserve the nutritional benefits and flavor of Roma tomatoes for up to a year. Like frozen Romas, canned tomatoes are best in sauces and soups.

You don't need to peel Roma tomatoes if you are roasting, dehydrating, or using them in fresh dishes. You must peel the tomatoes if you're using them in cooked recipes.
