MANYEL TOMATO (78 days Heirloom)-Discontinued

HEIRLOOM - Native American Indeterminate. This is a true, bright yellow tomato. The flavor is great, zingy and citrus-like. A very heavy yielder, Manyel produces slightly oblate, blemish free fruit. Fruit grow in clusters of 3 to 5 and run from 10 ounces to a pound. You begin to get fruit in the early-midseason. 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.

    Manyel Tomatoes coming in

    I planted Pinetree Garden's Manyel tomato on February 25th and they are now producing beautiful tomatoes in my Nashville, Tennessee garden.( It is August 7th today). The packet of seeds I used to plant these wonderful tomatoes was dated 2012 - five years old. I kept the seeds in an old tin can along with a packet of silica gel to absorb moisture (not in the freezer). These look like a keeper so far and I expect I'll plant them again next year. I enjoy growing German (i.e. Mennonite and Amish), Native American and Russian varieties for the fun of it. I learned how to grow tomatoes from my grandfather who had a truck garden in Boaz, Alabama and am very thankful for him.
