Blue Beech Tomato (Organic 85 Days)

Heirloom sausage-type paste tomato, similar to Opalka. An excellent canning tomato with thick, meaty flesh and little seeds; perfect for homemade sauce. Tastes great sliced and eaten fresh too. It is well adapted to northern climates, resists disease, and blossom end rot better than others. This strain was originally brought to Vermont from Italy during WWII.

25 seeds 

Blue Beech Tomato (Organic 85 Days) 

PLANTING

Solanum lycopersicum

Indeterminate

Germination: 7-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/4” deep

Starting Indoors: 6 weeks before the last frost. Provide 75-80ºF soil temperatures. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot, thin to the strongest seedling, or use the 20 Row seedling flat, transplanting into individual pots when seedlings get their 3rd set of leaves. Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water-soluble fertilizer, diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement. Transplant out after the last frost. Space 24-36" apart

Sowing Outdoors: Only in areas with very long growing seasons. Sow after the last frost. 

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.

Awesome flavor, meaty and few seeds

I've grown this paste tomato in Zone 4 for several years and will always plant it-- it has incredible flavor, mellow plus sweet (but not too sweet), meaty and few seeds. I love to make fresh salsa with it, also use for canning. Very prolific with bunches of 3-4 yummy tomatoes each 6-8" long.
