2 reviews

An heirloom with a combination of orange and yellow stripes both inside and out. Very large, beefsteak type fruits are 5 inches in diameter with juicy, meaty flesh, and a fine mild flavor. We have produced fruit that exceeded 2.5 pounds.

25 seeds

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 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.

    Incrredibly tast slicer and the best salsa tomato – EVER

    Easy to start, grows slow then booms. Prolific large fruits. Beautiful color. Orange, red and yellow inside and out. Photo on website does not do it justice. Tastiest we've ever grown. Incredible for salsa, but just as good on a sandwich. Salsa is more yellow which makes it a talker.

    Good germination

    Had almost 100% germination. Seedlings came up in about 3 or 4 days. I used bottom heat and 4 T5 fluorescent tubes. nice healthy seedlings so far.
