BlushingStar Tomato (F1 Hybrid 70-75 Days)

A tomato that stands out from other hybrid beefsteak varieties. Large, 2  ½  by 4” pink fruits are perfect for eating fresh or preserving. It bears a balanced rich, savory and sweet flavor reminiscent of heirloom tomatoes while being fortified with traits of modern hybrid tomatoes: higher yields of early-maturing fruits with fewer blemishes, disease resistance to late blight, andseptoria leaf spot.

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 the suggested measurement.

Harvest: When fruit is red (or color of the variety planted) and firm.

TipsNeeds fertile well-drained soil, amend with compost and/or add organic fertilizer. Keep well watered for optimum growth. Mulching retains moisture and helps with disease. Planting seedlings deeper than they were growing in their pots helps make a stronger roots system. Do not apply excessive nitrogen, which can promote excessive foliage and poor fruit set.
