Indigo Pear Drops Tomato (Organic 65 Days)

Back in 2015, we trialed this variety. It is part of the Indigo series. We absolutely love it, our favorite tomato of the season. We were super excited to offer it in the catalog, but then found out it was not available, (sigh) until perhaps the 2018 season, so we waited patiently. This designer tomato is finally here for everyone to grow and we can't wait for you to try it. It performed so well for us; impressed by the vast clusters of pear-shaped fruits with sunny orange skin that ripened with indigo-colored shoulders. The flavor is divine, delicately sweet, balanced with great tomato taste. PVP

Indigo Pear Drops Tomato (Organic 65 Days)

 

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 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. Transplant out after the last frost. Space 24-36" apart

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