BIG RAINBOW TOMATO (80 days heirloom)

3

HEIRLOOM Indeterminate. A beautiful and delicious bi-color beefsteak tomato. The golden shades dominate but the red shade accents the color of both the flesh and skin. Plants are fiercely fruitful with tomatoes growing to 1 to 2 pounds. If you like an old fashioned tomato, you will love Big Rainbow. 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.

Great price

I love shopping at PineTree because they have a large selection at great prices. I haven't planted the Big Rainbow Tomato yet, ask me in the fall how it tasted and the production.

AWESOME!!!

I didn't start these from seed, but bought them as "starts" from a local greenhouse. The plants were also mis-labled, so I ended up with these "mystery" tomatoes! After some research, I came to the conclusion that they were "Big Rainbow" tomatoes. And boy, are they BIG and COLORFUL!!! They are VERY productive and HUGE fruits (most were 2 lbs.!!!) and SOOO flavorful! Figured I try them from seed this year! That way I can do 1-2 plants (a 6 pk. is WAY to many for only two people, tho I did make sauce and freeze it, but haven't tried it yet). If you like big, mild tomatoes you have to give this one a try!

Beautiful and delicious

First off, this is the prettiest of all the tomatoes we grow. The fruit is big and is as delicate as a ripe peach- so you will never find this one in your local market. I plant one plant of these each year and they make the best tomatoes for tomato sandwiches
