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.

delicious, productive, never fails

I have planted Valencia tomatoes for years and shared some with fellow gardeners in our senior community, where space is at a premium. They have never failed and never cross-fertilized despite our close quarters. One of my favorites, light tasting with a good balance between acidity and sweetness.
