### What is the weight of 1 tomato?

– The average weight of a Roma tomato is between 2 and 5 ounces (57 to 142 grams)

To make matters even better, indeterminate Roma tomato cultivars will continue to produce fruit even after the growing season has ended

Ideal Growing Conditions

Ideal Growing Conditions

Roma tomatoes can grow up to three inches long in a cylindrical shape

They fall under the category of “determinate” plants, which means that the plants’ bushes only grow to a standard height

For your plants to thrive and grow strong, it is best to start seeds indoors at least one month before the last frost date

Avoid exposure to cold temperatures, as this might stop the growth process

Don’t forget to water your plants thoroughly and consistently, especially during the fruiting stage

Finally, to make the most out of your Roma tomato plant, you should think about incorporating a slow-releasing fertilizer and adding some compost during the growing season

Be careful with the nitrogen content: too much of it will encourage foliage growth and limit the number of tomatoes you can get from your plant
