Notably, these tomatoes exhibit good durability on the vine, demonstrating resistance to sunburn and cracking.

Growing: 

Climate: 

Flourishing in warm climates, this variety demands ample sunlight, ideally requiring 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily for optimal growth and fruit development. 

Soil Preparation: 

Blue Beauty Tomatoes thrive in well-drained, fertile soil. Improve the soil quality by incorporating organic matter like compost. Aim for a slightly acidic to neutral pH level (5.6-7.0) for optimal growth. 

Watering: 

Consistent moisture is vital. Deep, infrequent watering promotes a robust root system. Mulching helps retain moisture and suppresses weed growth. 

Support and Pruning: 

Supporting the plants with stakes or cages is beneficial. Pruning aids in managing size and enhances airflow around the plant. 

Fertilization: 

Feed Blue Beauty Tomato plants with a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer during transplanting and when the first fruits appear. Follow recommended dosages for optimal results. 

Harvesting and Storage: 

Harvest Time: 

Ripe fruits exhibit their characteristic blue-purple hues and a slightly soft texture. Harvest carefully to avoid damaging the plant. 

Storage: 

Store ripe tomatoes at room temperature away from direct sunlight. Refrigeration might affect the texture and flavor, so consuming them fresh is ideal. 

Culinary Uses:

Fresh Consumption: 

The unique flavor of the Blue Beauty Tomato makes it an excellent addition to salads, sandwiches, or enjoyed fresh to appreciate its distinct taste. 

Cooking and Preserving: 

Its fruity, slightly sweet taste adds depth to sauces, salsas, and dishes like bruschetta. Additionally, the tomatoes can be preserved through canning or drying for extended use. 

The Blue Beauty Tomato from Wild Boar Farms is not just a garden novelty; it's a testament to the possibilities of heirloom tomato breeding. Its captivating appearance, rich flavor, and manageable growth make it a sought-after choice for gardeners and culinary enthusiasts.

Planting & Care

Soil and Water: Tomatoes love fertile soil rich in organic matter. Add plenty of compost prior to planting. Soil pH is preferred between 5.6-7.0. Mulch to preserve moisture. Avoid wetting the foliage when watering. 

Planting and Growing: Provide ample spacing between plants, typically 18-24 inches, to facilitate proper air circulation and accommodate the potential for vigorous growth. Due to the potential for sprawling growth, offer support to Tomato plants early in the season. Staking or caging helps maintain an upright structure. Regular pruning can manage size and stimulate fruit production. 

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