Tomato - Thessaloniki - Lycopersicon esculentum

Tender Annual Heirloom. Indeterminate. Developed in Greece in the 1950s. Earthy, somewhat acid flavor in a medium sized salad tomato also used for canning. Think of a red baseball and you have the size and look. Uniform fruits have good blossom ends. It resists sun scald (due to its heavy foliage), fungus, and cracking.

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. Mulch to preserve moisture. Avoid wetting the foliage when watering.

Planting & Growing: Sow seeds in flats 6-8 weeks before the last frost and thin to 2" 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 fruits give slightly under finger pressure; the shoulders may not have changed color yet.

Did You Know? The city of Thessaloniki is the second largest city in Greece.
