Description

Tomato - Big Rainbow - Lycopersicon esculentum

Tender Annual Indeterminate. Heirloom. A tomato that lives up to its name with big (1-2 lb) fruits with a rainbow of colors on its green shoulders, yellow and orange body, red streaks, and red blossom end. Mature fruits are orange-yellow with red streaks, and a mixture of flavors. Sweet and juicy, it's a dramatic slicer for platters and sandwiches. This late season beefsteak tomato keeps producing for the big finish to your harvest. Resistant to cracking, and foliar diseases: early and late blight, septoria leaf spot, gray and leaf mold; and bacterial spot, speck & canker.

Did You Know? This heirloom originated in Polk County, Minnesota.

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