Tomato - Riesentraube Grape
This old German heirloom was offered in Philadelphia by the mid 1800's. The sweet red 1 oz fruit grow in large clusters and the name means "Giant Bunch of Grapes" in German. Large plants produce massive yields.
Planting Instructions: Start seed indoors 4-6 weeks prior to the last frost of spring. Seeds are covered only slightly to allow light which sometimes assists germination. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Containers are held in warm conditions until sprouts appear, which may take anywhere from 3-10 days, depending on temperature, moisture, etc. Move sprouted plants immediately to bright light conditions, such as a south-facing window or under a grow-light setup. After the last frost, set out seedlings into the garden and space 2' to 3' apart.
We have the growing on our patio and they are doing great. HAPPY PLANTING !! Heirloom seeds are great gifts. Include them in your greeting cards. Give the gift that keeps on giving.
