80 days. Open polinated heirloom. Indeterm. Makes the best canned tomatoes and tomato sauce. Very productive, compact plants produce loads of 3" long, red, plum shaped tomatoes that are quite dry and have few seeds. They ccok down into a thick, rich, delicious paste quickly. Fruits hold well on the plants and the plants keep producing until frost. Very crack resistant, perfect fruits. A canner's delight. From Italy. 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 perfect. 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 a deep mulch, but wait until soil is warm and plants are growing quickly.|
