Solar Flare Tomato By Wild Boar Farms

Solar Flare Tomato By Wild Boar Farms

Lusciously Sweet, Brad's Work Horse

6-10 oz. beefsteak fruits captivate with their red hue adorned with gold stripes. This variety delivers a very meaty texture coupled with a luscious, sweet red tomato flavor. A product of an F-7 Cross from Beauty King, selected for flavor, WOW Factor, production, increased earliness, and scab resistance, Solar Flare thrives as a mid/early season full-bodied red tomato. Brad’s workhorse, this variety promises a delectable and visually appealing addition to any garden.

Sustainably grown in 2.75" pots

Soil Preparation: 

Solar Flare Tomatoes thrive in well-drained, fertile soil. Enhance the soil by incorporating organic matter like compost. Aim for a slightly acidic to neutral pH level (5.6-7.0) to create an ideal growing environment. 

Spacing: 

Provide adequate spacing between plants, typically 18-24 inches, to ensure proper air circulation and support healthy growth. 

Support and Pruning: 

Due to the potential for vigorous growth, provide support for Solar Flare Tomato plants early in the growing season. Stake or cage the plants to prevent sprawling. Regular pruning can help manage plant size and encourage optimal fruit production. 

Watering: 

Maintain consistent moisture levels throughout the growing season. Deep, regular watering is preferable over shallow and frequent irrigation. The use of mulch around the plants helps retain moisture and suppress weeds. 

Fertilization: 

Feed your Solar Flare Tomato plants with a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer during transplanting and when the first fruits appear. Follow the recommended dosage on the fertilizer package for optimal results. 

Maturation and Harvest: 

Days to Maturity: 

Solar Flare Tomatoes typically take around 75-80 days to reach maturity from the time of transplanting. Harvest the tomatoes when they display vibrant orange and red hues and show a slight softness when gently squeezed. The full coloration indicates ripeness, and the flavor is optimal when the tomatoes are fully ripe. 

Storage and Usage: 

Store harvested Solar Flare Tomatoes at room temperature until fully ripe, then refrigerate to extend shelf life. Enjoy these visually stunning and flavorful tomatoes fresh in salads, as a snack, or as a vibrant addition to various dishes. 

Cultivating Solar Flare Tomatoes from Wild Boar Farms is a rewarding experience for both seasoned and novice gardeners. The unique visual appeal and delectable taste make these tomatoes a standout addition to any garden.
