Growing: 

Soil Preparation: 

Crushed Heart Tomatoes thrive in well-drained, fertile soil. Enhance 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. 

Spacing Considerations: 

Provide ample spacing between plants, typically 18-24 inches, to allow for proper air circulation and accommodate potential growth. 

Support and Pruning: 

Due to the potential for vigorous growth, offer support to Crushed Heart Tomato plants early in the season. Staking or caging helps maintain an upright structure. Regular pruning can manage size and encourage fruit production. 

Watering: 

Maintain consistent moisture levels throughout the growing season. Deep, regular watering is preferable over shallow and frequent irrigation. Mulching around the plants aids in moisture retention and weed suppression. 

Fertilizing: 

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

Maturation and Harvest: 

Days to Maturity: 

Crushed Heart Tomatoes typically take around 75-80 days to reach maturity from the time of transplanting. Harvest tomatoes when they exhibit a vibrant red color and a characteristic heart shape. The fruits should feel firm yet slightly yielding to the touch, indicating optimal ripeness. 

Storage and Usage: 

Store harvested Crushed Heart Tomatoes at room temperature until fully ripe. These tomatoes are versatile in the kitchen, suitable for fresh consumption, salads, or enhancing various dishes with their unique shape and flavor. 

Cultivating Crushed Heart Tomatoes from Wild Boar Farms is an enriching experience combining visual appeal and exceptional flavor. Following this comprehensive guide, you'll embark on a successful journey, nurturing healthy Crushed Heart Tomato plants and enjoying the harvest of distinctive and heart-shaped tomatoes.
