Aunt Ruby's German Green Heirloom Tomato Seed

(Solanum lycopersicum)

85 days. Open polinated Heirloom. Indeterminate. The flavor of Aunt Ruby's is legendary - sweet and tart like other green tomatoes, but also has a rich spiciness that others are lacking. On everyone's top ten list for flavor. The fruits are large and green, with a yellowish mottling and a pink blush on the bottom when fully ripe - just beautiful! Can get over 1 lb.

Germinated at 92%.


Lifecycle:1    (0: N/A, 1: annual, 2: perennial, 3: biennial)
Container Planting:no

Cultural Requirements:

Soil:Adaptable. Tomatoes need phosphorous, potassium and calcium more than nitrgen. Bonemeal is perfect. Too much nitrogen will cause excessive plant growth and fewer, later fruits.
Propagation / Germination:Start indoors 5 to 6 weeks before last frost date. Keep lightly moist but not wet. Will germinate at room temperature (60 to 85 degrees), but does best at 70 degrees.
Sun:Full sun.
Water:Water weekly if necessary. Tomatoes appreciate a deep mulch, but wait until soil has warmed and plants are growing rapidly.
