Description

This big, beautiful beefsteak tomato with fabulous flavor is a cross between the famous pink Brandywine and a treasured family variety from Italy. Juicy, flavorful and heavy in the hand, Chianti Rose tomatoes are thin skinned with smooth, creamy flesh and glowing rose-red color. The strong, vigorous vines with potato leaf foliage tolerate cooler summers and are more crack-resistant and uniform than other large fruited heirlooms. Huge harvests of these scrumptious tomatoes are a highlight of the summer!

Planting & Care

Soil & Water: Prepare soil with well aged manure or compost. Mulch to provide even moisture retention; do not over water once fruit begins to ripen.

Planting & Growing:Begins seeding indoors 6-8 weeks before outdoor night temperatures are reliably 55 degrees. Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep and 1 inch apart in a container of seed starting mix. Keep moist but not soggy, and very warm (80 degrees). Provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to transplant outdoors. When 2 inches tall, transplant into 4 inch pots, burying stems up to base of leaves. Maintain at 70 degree. Feed with half strength fertilizer every 2 weeks until ready to plant. Went nights are reliably warm, transplant 3 feet apart in full sun.

Harvesting & Storage: Pick fruit when fully colored and eat fresh or sliced in salads, but do not store in refrigerator.
