KELLOGGS BREAKFAST TOMATO (79 days) (HEIRLOOM)

4

HEIRLOOM Indeterminate. An heirloom from West Virginia preserved by Darrell Kellogg, a railroad supervisor, after receiving seed from a friend. An extremely large, sunny orange beefsteak with an outstanding flavor that is just unforgettable. 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.

Kellogg's Breakfast Tomato

This is the most delicious tomato I ever tasted --very meaty and flavorful. I have been growing it for years, and have never been disappointed. I continues to produce well into the fall in northern NJ.

Ten-star taste!

Hands down the best tasting tomato I’ve ever eaten. Large plants produce lots of fruits.

big, juicy, flavorful

Have grown this variety for years, thanks to Pinetree for introducing us. I have a friend that wants only this one. Added to fresh tomato soup with red ones last year--awesome! Will always grow it.

Excellent slicer with excellent flavor

This grew beautifully in an "Earth Box" to about 7' and had larger tomatoes than I expected. We have brought in large green tomatoes and think they will last until mid Dec. (Ohio) Planted two plants in one box. Good producers. Our tomatoes had a narrow ring of seeds just under the skin and the rest was nearly seedless. Very "meaty". Can't speak to growing in the ground, but in an Earth Box with added calcium...fabulous!
