Common names for Roma tomatoes are plum tomatoes, sauce tomatoes or grape tomatoes. All these names refer to tomato varieties with elongated or ovoid shape, an average size of 6-10 cm in length and a diameter of 3-5 cm. They reach an approximate weight of up to 60g per fruit.
Some varieties have a somewhat mealy or floury taste, but convince with a magnificent overall flavour. Roma tomatoes have little juice and seeds, but a lot of meat. That is why they are almost exclusively used for sauces, tomato juice and preserved as tomato pulp and tomato paste.
