Oregon Spring Tomato (68 Days)

1 review

One of many excellent tomatoes released by Dr. Jim Baggett of Oregon State. Part of this breeding effort was to develop a variety which could be set out in very cool spring temperatures. They can go out in April if freezing can be prevented. Tomatoes are full sized, 4 inches across, with fine color and texture. Yields are high and flavor is great, nicely acidic. 

25 seeds

PLANTING

Solanum lycopersicum

Semi-Indeterminate

Germination: 7-14 days

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 70-85ºF.

Seed Sowing Depth: 1/4” deep

Starting Indoors: 6 weeks before 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 last frost. Space 24-36" apart

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

Great for cooler New England Climate

i have grown Oregon Spring for many years here in New England. I am always able to set these out earlier than any other tomato, and since they have such a short maturity they are always the first on the table. Good tomato flavor in smaller sized fruit.
