Tim's Taste of Paradise Tomato By Wild Boar Farms

Tim's Taste of Paradise Tomato By Wild Boar Farms

Preferred to Sungold Hands Down

Originating as the experimental variety "Fruity Mix," developed by plant breeder Tim Peters in the late 1990s, it faced near extinction when his business closed in the early 2000s. The fruit exhibits a unique sweet and intensely fruity flavor with elusive umami notes. It was rediscovered in 2018 by tomato aficionado Tien Chiu, a result of crossing wild species with domestic tomatoes. This variety, now propagated by Wild Boar Farms, is a must for home growers, showcasing excellent vigor and productivity. The only challenge is resisting the temptation to keep these irresistible tomatoes outdoors!

Sustainably grown in 2.75" pots 

Growing: 

Soil Preparation: 

Tim's Taste of Paradise Tomatoes thrive in well-drained, fertile soil. Enhance the soil by incorporating organic matter such as compost. Aim for a slightly acidic to neutral pH level (5.6-7.0) for an ideal growing environment. 

Spacing: 

Provide sufficient spacing between plants, typically 18-24 inches, to allow for proper air circulation and support healthy growth. 

Support and Pruning: 

Given the potential for vigorous growth, offer support to the plants early in the growing season. Staking or caging helps prevent sprawling, and regular pruning can manage plant size and stimulate optimal fruit production. 

Watering: 

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

Fertilization: 

Feed your Tim's Taste of Paradise 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: 

Tim's Taste of Paradise Tomatoes typically takes around 75-80 days to reach maturity from the time of transplanting. Harvest the tomatoes when they turn yellow and have a slight softness when gently squeezed. 

Storage and Usage: 

Store harvested Tim's Taste of Paradise Tomatoes at room temperature until fully ripe, then refrigerate to extend shelf life. Enjoy the unique and tropical flavor in fresh salads, as a snack, or as a distinctive addition to various culinary creations. 

Cultivating Tim's Taste of Paradise Tomatoes from Wild Boar Farms is an exciting journey for any gardening enthusiast. The distinct flavor profile and visual appeal of these tomatoes make them a standout choice for both gardeners and culinary enthusiasts.
