French HEIRLOOM Indeterminate. This is the one if you want to grow your tomatoes like your pumpkins, as in BIG. Fruits grow to 3 pounds and you will get them in large numbers on plants that are unusually large in size, probably dwarfing all the other tomatoes in the garden. Flavor is very good for a really big tomato. 25 seeds.
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.
I just bought these seeds this year. Kind of bummed I had to germinate them twice to get them to sprout. But, I finally got the quantity I want to transplant by the end of next month. I'm excited to see what they taste like.
