A meaty, pear shaped tomato that is available in red and yellow. It has fewer seeds and because of its meatiness and full flavor it makes a good canning and sauce tomato.
Roma tomatoes are grown in the United States and Mexico and are readily available. Tomatoes should never be refrigerated, but instead stored at room temperature. Refrigerating a tomato will reduce its flavor by approximately 30% because the cold temperature will change the sugars to starch. It will also cause its firm texture to turn pulpy.
