Kelloggs Breakfast Tomato (Heirloom, 79 Days)

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 simply unforgettable. 

25 seeds

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

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

    Kellogg's Breakfast Tomato

    I actually plan on using it next year since the season is already under way. The other seeds are also slated for next year. But I will definitely succumb to your catalog again because you are so terrific! Thank you.

    Well, I've had it before, so I kind of knew what to expect. It's a great variety. I'll continue to use it. I also have enjoyed being your customer, so I'll continue to do business with you.

    Great meaty tomato

    We grew Kellogg's Breakfast tomatoes last season & they are wonderful. Great gold color, solid meaty interior with few seeds, & almost papaya like flavor. Look forward to more.

    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.
