Plum tomatoes

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Plum tomatoes, also called Roma tomatoes, are egg-shaped tomatoes available year-round in most grocery stores. They are canned whole in their juice, sometimes with a fresh basil leaf added for flavor. Imported Italian plum tomatoes are the most flavorful.

For other canned tomato products, see crushed tomatoes, tomato juice, tomato paste, tomato purée, and tomato sauce.
