Arkansas Traveler Heirloom Tomato Seed
80 to 85 days, open polinated Heirloom. Bred in Arkansas to produce well in hot, humid climates, this tomato is also crack and disease resistant. Very productive, it has beautiful, smooth, 6 to 8 oz. pink fruits bursting with that excellent, sweet/tart flavor that pink tomatoes are known for. Very popular here in the Ozarks, this tomato has quite a following. Germinated at 97% on 1/1/12.
|Lifecycle:||1 (0: N/A, 1: annual, 2: perennial, 3: biennial)|
|Soil:||Very adaptable. High phosphorous, potassium, and calcium are more important than nitrogen. Bonemeal is the perfect fertilizer for tomatoes. We also add epsom salts to planting holes as our soil is low in magnesium. Too much nitrogen causes large, leafy plants with fewer, later fruits.|
|Propagation / Germination:||Start seeds inside 5 to 6 weeks before last frost date. Seeds will germinate at room temperatures, 60 to 85 degrees, but does best at right around 77 degrees. Keep lightly moist, not wet.|
|Water:||Water weekly if necessary. Tomatoes appreciate a deep layer of mulch, but wait to mulch until the soil has warmed and plants are growing rapidly.|
