GOLD NUGGET TOMATO (55 days)

SKU:

Determinate. Tomatoes are small, an inch or so in diameter, and a healthy golden color. They are one of the earliest to mature in the field, not prone to cracking and don't have a lot of seeds. Flavor is memorable, similar to Yellow Pear. This variety, bred by Dr. James Baggett at Oregon State, is fairly compact allowing efficient space utilization. 25 seeds.

PLANTING:

Indoors- 6 weeks before last frost, 1/4” deep with soil temperatures 75 degrees. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant out 24-36” apart after last frost when soil is 55-60 degrees and night temperatures are over 45 degrees.

Harvest- When fruit is red (or color of the variety planted) and firm.

Tips- Plant in fertile soil, amended with compost, mulch and provide even moisture. Plant deeper than they were growing in the containers as it makes a stronger roots system. Apply a light compost tea every few weeks. Do not apply excessive nitrogen, which can promote excessive foliage and poor fruit set.
