German Johnson Tomato Seeds (Organic)

German Johnson Tomato Seeds (Organic)

Robust Pink Beauty

The German Johnson Tomato, a cherished heirloom variety, traces its roots to the southern United States, particularly Virginia and North Carolina. Renowned for its large size, delicious taste, and robust growth, it's a popular choice among tomato enthusiasts.

Within the German Johnson Tomato family, there aren't distinct subspecies, but this cultivar stands out for its vigorous growth and distinctive appearance. The plant displays indeterminate vine-like growth, with sprawling vines that require sturdy support. Its foliage is lush and green, providing cover for the large, ribbed, and irregularly shaped fruits that boast a striking pinkish-red hue, often with yellow undertones.

Taste-wise, the German Johnson Tomato offers a rich, sweet, and slightly tangy flavor, making it an excellent choice for slicing and enjoying fresh in salads, sandwiches, and sauces. Its meaty flesh with few seeds further enhances its appeal for culinary use.

When planting from seed, German Johnson Tomatoes thrive in fertile, well-draining soil with good moisture retention. Start seeds indoors about 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost date, ensuring warmth and adequate light for healthy seedling development. Transplant the seedlings outdoors once the soil has warmed and there is no risk of frost.

These tomatoes prefer full sun and consistent watering throughout the growing season. Mulching around the plants helps maintain soil moisture levels and prevents weeds. Regular pruning and support for the vines contribute to healthy growth and ample fruit production.

The German Johnson Tomato's impressive size, vibrant color, and delicious taste make it a sought-after variety for gardeners seeking a flavorful and visually appealing addition to their harvest.

Planting & Care

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

I love this tomatoes because they're big.

I got my tomatoes seeds packet right on time and now I'm just waiting for spring to come to plant the seeds.
