Ratings & Reviews
Delicious and Better than Lowes Variety
I had bought these to try out a new variety. The previous year (2018), I had purchased some Roma tomatoes from Lowes. The following year (2019), I grew Martino's Roma tomatoes, and the lowes pack together. These tasted a lot better and made for some fantastic tomato soup/sauce. They had a lot of fruit, and sometimes it was hard to keep up - a good problem to have. They were easy to care for, and I didn't run into any issues/diseases/etc. growing them.
