78 days. Open polinated Heirloom. Indeterm. Vigorous tomato plant yields loads of sweet flavored, 3 to 4" long plum shaped tomatoes. The color is just beautiful - bright, solid, vibrant orange. The fruits are reliably blemish free and perfect. Tastey enough for fresh eating. Also makes a gorgeous orange, excellently flavored sauce. We like to make salsa with these and some red and purple peppers and green cilantro - stunning! A canner's favorite - ripens quite a few tomatoes at one time. It did well for us in this last cool, wet summer.
Germinated at 96%. .
|Lifecycle:||1 (0: N/A, 1: annual, 2: perennial, 3: biennial)|
|Soil:||Adaptable. Tomatoes need phosphorous, potasium, and calcium more than nitrogen. Bone meal is ideal. Excess nitrogen causes large plants with fewer, later fruits.|
|Propagation / Germination:||Start seeds indoors 5 to 6 weeks before last frost. Keep soil lightly moist, not wet. 77 degrees is ideal, but anywhere from 60 to 85 degrees will work.|
|Water:||Water weekly if necessary. Tomatoes appreciate mulch, but wait until soil has warmed and plants are growing fast.|
