75 days. OP. Indet. Heirloom from Poland. Large, meaty, red/orange fruits are about 5-6" long. The flesh is relatively dry and makes a delicious tomato sauce. A very popular variety, but does not produce well in extremely hot areas. Produces abundantly in more moderate areas like the Mid and upper Midwest and New England. It produced lightly for us in the Ozarks the last two summers, but we've had extreme heat.
Our plants are sustainably raised in our own potting mix. We use only organic fertilizers and sprays if needed. We have been growing and selling plants since 1997.
Our tomato plants are shipped in individual 3" deep pots. They are usually 6 to 10 inches tall and are ready to be planted out in your garden.
We package our plants with extreme care so they arrive undamaged at your doorstep. Each plant is tucked into its own padded sleeve. The soil in each pot is covered so it will not spill out. A plant tag identifying the variety is included with each plant.
We ship every Monday and Tuesday, from April 5 into June, according to your location or your request.
We are now closed for the 2014 season. Thank you to all of our wonderful customers! We will be back in January, 2015.
We produce all of our own seed, unlike most seed sellers. We never purchase bulk seeds and repackage them. You can be sure that you are getting top quality, healthy, and vigorous seeds from us, and that they were produced by us on our small farm in healthy soil.
