MORTGAGE LIFTER TOMATO (77 days) (HEIRLOOM) - Pinetree Garden Seeds - Vegetables

MORTGAGE LIFTER TOMATO (77 days) (HEIRLOOM)

SKU:

HEIRLOOM Indeterminate. The story is that a gentleman named Radiator Charlie bred this variety with crosses between German Johnson, Beefsteak, and other varieties. He was able to earn enough selling the seed to pay off his mortgage during the Depression. Very large, pink skinned, very sweet tomatoes. 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.
