Last year, I saw at the local fruit and veg store some "organic romas, local" for sale crazy cheap (something like $12 for 15lb). I bought a box, used some of it for preserved sauces, and took a gamble and saved seeds from some to plant this year. Had no idea if it was a hybrid, or a determinate, or open pollinated (I wanted open pollinated). Well, this year, it proved a good decision: right now, we have dozens and dozens of these beautiful, perfect roma tomatoes forming nicely in our tomato patch and I've already harvested about 20lbs worth, for use in pizza sauce and pasta sauces. I'll probably get 75lbs production this year, from a $12 initial purchase of 15lbs at the store last year.
So take a gamble on local organic tomatoes you buy at the store this year - save the seeds, and plant your own next year!
