Greetings tomato lovers or at least tomato growers (as the last post I read was by someone who doesn't like tomatoes fresh.) Well I love fresh tomatoes and my favorite kind are paste tomatoes. We also do lots of canning. I grew Roma's for quite a few years but was plagued with blossum end rot and then grew san marzano which are indeterminate and did well for me, I also get a little blossom end rot but not to bad. I am looking for a big prolific paste tomato that is indeterminate but comes on pretty early and is resistant to blossom end rot.
Any suggestions?

You never quit growing when you are a gardener. :)

How about Amish Paste? It is suppose to be fairly good tasting.

In general paste types are more prone to BER so I don't know if you can find one that is proven to be resistant.

Opalka is very popular with the heirloom crowd. Heidi is good and extremely productive.
