Description

Tomato - Hillbilly - Lycopersicon esculentum

Tender Annual Indeterminate. Heirloom. Pack your sandwiches with flavorful slices of these 2 lb. beefsteak tomatoes. Colorful orange-yellow tomatoes are striped with pink and red, and make a lively addition to a salad platter because the multi-colors continue inside the fruit. Enjoy a big harvest from this heavy producer.

Did You Know? This sweet, low acid tomato is named for its origin in West Virginia.

Soil and 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. Mulch to preserve moisture. Avoid wetting the foliage when watering.

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

Nice tomato

Grew this one last year. Was not a great producer, but it was not a great season for tomatoes. Will try it again.
