Tachi Tomato is a hybrid, saladette or Roma-type tomato with excellent disease resistance, including resistance to root knot nematodes. This is a determinate tomato variety that will produce a medium-sized plant. The fruits are dark red with excellent flavor and texture. Tachi Tomato produces extra-large, blocky fruits that are elongated like a traditional Roma tomato. They have an exceptional shelf-life and may be picked at the mature green or vine ripe stage. This hybrid tomato sets fruit well in hot and humid conditions. This is a great variety for making Italian sauces for pizza and pasta. It also is a great variety for making fresh salsa, canning and preserving. Seeds are pelleted for ease of planting into seed trays.

Tomatoes are in the nightshade family along with peppers and eggplant. Plants in the nightshade family are susceptible to blossom end rot, which is a result of a calcium deficiency. To prevent or alleviate this problem, apply pelleted gypsum at the base of the plant at bloom set. Tomatoes do best when transplanted, as the germination time can be longer than most vegetable seed. They grow very well in our heavy-duty seed starting trays. Plants should be started 4-6 weeks before the intended outdoor planting date.

If conditions outside are favorable, transplants may be planted directly from our 162 cell trays. If conditions are still too cold for planting tomatoes, transplants may be “stepped-up” to 4″ pots to allow more room to grow. Tomatoes can produce heavy fruits and will require some form of support to keep the plant upright. This ensures that plants and fruits stay off the ground, reducing the possibility of disease and keeping fruits clean.

    I grew these to transplant in my spring garden and I felt they were more difficult than Bella Rosa Tomatoes or others I have grown. They seemed more difficult to germinate and slower to grow, therefore the few that came up were loaded with green tomatoes when the pest and disease pressure was highest. We did have a VERY wet spring/early summer. I will be growing again next spring and will push them more and plant out earlier.

    I planted these along side my other varieties, and these are not doing badly, but are slow!! I have my other plants in the gorund already and the Tachi’s that were started the same day 8/19/2021 are still holding onto their little pellet pods. I can see a few tiny second leaves starting to form. I will try these again in the spring, but they are going to need a 2 week head start on all of the others.

    I am in Central Tx, zone 8b, and it is hotter than the devil’s butt crack here right now. Each day is in the triple digits since the beginning of June. And my Tachis are rockin’ and rollin’, y’all. I took a picture hoping to show you all the fruit I have on just one plant. Quite an ego boost for a struggling newbie gardener. This is my second year gardening, and I still know nothing. I plant my seedlings in a mix of aged chicken poop, wood chips, and coco coir. Put a little bone meal and some organic fertilizer in the hole before the plant, water it in, and then water every day in this heat. I saw Greg recommend pruning up to the first flowers, so I do that too when they g et to that point. But now there was something I didn’t know to do, and I found out the hard way: just because it’s determinate doesn’t mean it doesn’t need support. These fruits are heavy and prolific, and just about broke my plants. They might be short tomato plants, but they need tyin’. Tie up your Tachis, folks. Before the stems snap under the weight of those tomatoes. I have one plant with over 20 fruits on it. I mean it; I have never had this many tomatoes growing in my two years (lol) of growing vegetables. And I have tried growing Amish Paste and San Marzano, and had crap luck with those.
    These Tachis make me feel like a pro. I sure wish there were a way to post the picture I just took.

    As far as paste tomato goes, I rate at that top. These are much better than Roma or San Marzano and I have grown them both. However I dont grow these anymore because paste tomatoes are basically only good for paste and salads and salsa since the are dry and not much flavor raw. I now use my slicing tomatoes for making paste, sauces and salsas. I do grow the Amish Paste which doesnt have the big all of sudden surge of tomatoes and it not as resistive to some issues like most hybrid tomatoes, however that APs are paste tomatoes that are bigger, meatier that taste more like a slicer and they are bigger but are prown to more issues
