These are the heirlooms for future generations.

20 seeds

Large Barred Boar Tomato (Organic 65-75 Days)


Solanum lycopersicum


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.

I recommend this product
Excellent flavor

This is my second year growing two plants of Large Barred Boar. The flavor is fantastic, much like my favorite Cherokee Purple. This year I am having a great year for tomatoes, and my LBB are both looking very healthy still at the end of July, having borne several huge "doubled" fruit over a pound, and other good sized regular shaped (flattened globe) ones. Going strong. into August in Maryland. I am 'sold' on Large Barred Boar.

Fabulous Flavor, Color, Size and Early, Too

We just harvested and ate our first LBB tomato and the flavor was outstanding! It reminded us of Cherokee Purple with the volume turned up. The tomato was huge, perfect with no cracks, striped, and my first tomato to ripen from the seedlings I transplanted into raised beds in mid-April, or about 65 days from transplanting. This is my new favorite!
