"Solanum Roman Candle (USDA Organic) Tomato, Solanum lycopersicum 'Roman Candle Tomato', is a pure-yellow, banana-shaped, paste-type fruit that is 4 to 6 inches long. The superior flavor of 'Roman Candle' tomatoes, combined with the meaty flesh, make it a great choice for salsas and sauces. The bright yellow skin combined with the white flesh add visual interest as well. Tomatoes should be planted outside after the last average frost date. In warm winter/hot summer areas, tomatoes can be planted in early fall for winter harvest. Tomatoes prefer well drained soil that is high in organic matter. Tomatoes need at least 1 inch of water a week. Soak to depth of 6 to 10 inches when watering. They need at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. If you are growing tomatoes in a pot, use plastic because it prevents evaporation and afternoon wilts. "
