Roma Tomatoes in July

Asked July 8, 2016, 12:46 PM EDT

i have two tomato plants right now, one delicious tomato plant and one cherry tomato. I just realized I want to be able to make my own pasta sauce and I know Roma's are the best for pasta sauce but now it's July is it ok to plant one now? Will or grow fast enough?

Hi,

It depends on how large the plant is. I think Roma's need at least 70 days from transplant to maturity. I am not sure what your first frost date is but probably mid October. So your best bet would be to find a plant for sale. Starting them from seed would be risky if you get an early frost.
