Tomato 'Roma' growing and care instructionsRoma is, in fact, a specific heirloom variety of tomato, although it is now (incorrectly) being used as a generic term for any tomato of the same shape and quality. The original, heirloom, Roma tomato was introduced in the 1950's, and skyrocketed to fame thanks to its excellent canning, paste, and sauce-making qualities. The true, heirloom, Roma is an heirloom as well as OP variety (Officially now an heirloom, as defined by being a 50+ year variety. Introduction in 1958. 2011-1958=53.) There are also, unfortunately, several tomato varieties mislabeled as "Roma" and which are hybrids. These tomatoes should not be labeled as Roma, and should only be referred to with complete names like "Hybrid Roma" or "Roma Hybrid", to avoid this confusion.
