Description

Tomato - Valencia - Lycoperiscon esculentum

Tender Annual Indeterminate. Heirloom. Valencia is an Indiana heirloom that bears large orange fruit weighing 8-10 oz. The fruit is firm with few seeds and has a great old-time tomato flavor. The plant is vigorous and requires staking.

Did You Know? Tomatoes are native to Central and South America and were originally thought to be inedible when introduced in Europe.

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. Soak the soil 4"-6" deep at 7-day intervals.

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, 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 top may not have changed color yet.

I plant it every year

I'm admittedly a tomato addict. I can never narrow it down to less than 2 dozen plants. That being said, at least one is always a valencia! Prolific and very tasty. The big smooth orange orbs are beautiful against the green foliage as well as sliced on the plate.

Love this Tomato!

This is my favorite tomato! It's early which is great for the short season where I live. It produces very well, even in a cool summer, and mine this year survived snow in lat May! It has an excellent flavor, sweet and sub-acid. It is the perfect size for a slicer and has dense flesh and few seeds, almost like a paste tomato. <br /><br />Almost all of the seeds I planted germinated, even though the seeds were a couple of years old.
