Carmello Tomato Seeds

Carmello Tomato Seeds

Meaty, sweet tomatoes

Carmello tomatoes, originating from France, have gained popularity for their exceptional flavor and versatility in culinary use. This indeterminate variety belongs to the Solanum lycopersicum species and exhibits robust growth, yielding plentiful, medium-sized fruits throughout the growing season.

Their aesthetic appeal lies in the vibrant red color of the tomatoes, perfectly rounded and smooth, with a glossy sheen. The plants showcase vigorous growth, reaching heights of around 5 to 6 feet, featuring sprawling vines that require staking or caging for support.

Carmello tomatoes are celebrated for their delicious taste—a harmonious balance between sweet and tangy, accompanied by a rich, complex flavor. These tomatoes are juicy with a meaty texture, making them ideal for fresh consumption, salads, sandwiches, sauces, and canning.

To grow Carmello tomatoes from seed, provide fertile, well-draining soil rich in organic matter. Ensure they receive full sun exposure (at least 6-8 hours per day) and maintain consistent moisture levels. Sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last expected frost date, planting them about 1/4 inch deep. Transplant the seedlings outdoors when the soil has warmed to around 60°F (15°C) and all risk of frost has passed.

Regularly prune excessive foliage for better airflow and to prevent diseases. Mulching around the plants helps retain moisture and suppresses weed growth. Stake or cage the plants to support their growth and ensure proper air circulation. Harvest ripe tomatoes by gently twisting them off the vine, allowing the remaining fruit to continue ripening.

Carmello tomatoes are favored for their superior taste, ease of cultivation, and prolific fruiting, making them a cherished addition to home gardens and a go-to choice for tomato aficionados.
