Lycopersicon esculentum

Min Qty: 0.5 g

Description: Indeterminate heirloom originally from the Wisconsin Amish in the 1870s. Produces large crops of juicy, meaty tomatoes perfect for sauces, salsa, canning or fresh. Larger than Romas, with 8 ounce fruit that has a thick flesh and few seeds.

Planting Instructions: 85 days. Start indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost. Plant seeds in flats or peat pots 1/4-1/2" deep in a sterile potting mix. Keep warm, above 70F and evenly moist until germination in 7-10 days. Transplant outdoors 3-4' apart after the danger of frost has passed and plants are hardened off. Choose a location with rich, fertile, well-drained soil with plenty of sun. Tomatoes can be buried deep, up their stems, where they'll grow additional roots. Prefers even watering. Plants grow to 4', so expect to provide support.
