Description

Tomato - Old German - Lycopersicon lycopersicum

Tender Annual Indeterminate. Heirloom. This Mennonite heirloom has large fruit often weighing over 1 pound! The fruit is yellow with a red center core showing through the skin. It has outstanding flavor and few seeds; great for slicing. Not a heavy producer.

Did You Know? Tomatoes are a member of the nightshade family which also includes tomatillos, eggplant, peppers and potatoes

Soil & Water: Tomatoes love fertile soil rich in organic matter. Add plenty of compost prior to planting. Soil pH is preferred between 5.5-7.0. Water deeply and consistently to prevent blossom end rot. Avoid wetting the foliage when watering.

Planting & Growing: Sow seeds in flats 6-8 weeks before the last frost and thin to 2" apart after the first true leaves appear. Before transplanting after the last frost, harden off the plants by placing them outdoors for a few hours to start, increasing the amount of time each day until they are accustomed to a full day of sunlight.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest when individual fruits give slightly under finger pressure; the shoulders may not have changed color yet.
