88 days. Open polinated Heirloom. Indeterm. Pink, sweet/ tart, very tasty fruits average 2 lbs, but can get even larger. We did not intend to offer this variety as we already have a plethora of pink tomatoes. But, we were given some seed, so we planted a few. We were sold! Giant Belgium has the same fantastic flavor as Brandywine, but the fruits are substantially larger and more cosmetically perfect. It is also more productive for us, although later to produce. Pink tomatoes have an acid/sweet balance that we think is the perfect tomato flavor.
Germinated at 88%. .
|Lifecycle:||1 (0: N/A, 1: annual, 2: perennial, 3: biennial)|
|Soil:||Adaptable. Tomatoes need phosphorous, potassium, and calcium more than nitrogen. Bone meal is perfect. Excess nitrogen will cause large plants with fewer, later fruits.|
|Propagation / Germination:||Start indoors 5 to 6 weeks before last frost. Keep soil lightly moist, but not wet. 77degrees is optimum, but will germinate from 60 to 85 degrees.|
|Water:||Water weekly if necessary. Tomatoes appreciate a deep mulch, but wait until the soil has warmed and the plants are growing rapidly.|
