Description

Tomato - Porter Improved - Lycopersicon lycopersicum

Tender Annual Indeterminate. Heavy yields in high temperatures and low humidity. Large plant produces 4 oz deep-red globes with a clean, classic tomato taste. Larger than Porter but with same setting ability. Excellent keeping quality.

Did You Know? California growers produce 96% of the tomatoes processed in the United States.

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

Planting & Growing: Sow seeds in flats 6-8 weeks before the last frost and thin to 2" 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. Once transplanted, provide full sun, except in hot climates where some afternoon shade is recommended.

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