Description

Tomato - Aunt Ruby German - Lycopersicon lycopersicum

Tender Annual Indeterminate. Heirloom. Aunt Ruby is large, green, beefsteak-type tomato with a sweet, spicy flavor. Its 12-16 ounce fruit turns light green when ripe with a hint of yellow and pink blush. This heirloom is from Ruby Arnold of Greenville, Tennessee.

Did You Know? Research shows that protective effects of tomatoes against prostate cancer and cardiovascular disease result from the synergy of lycopene with other phytonutrients naturally present in whole tomatoes. Lycopene is highest in organically grown tomatoes.

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.

Reviews

Nice color, big fruit

This was fun to grow. The tomato is greenish on the outside, so you need to do a squeeze test to see if it is ripe. has a nice flavor and good fresh or cooked.
