Nebraska Wedding Tomato (Heirloom, 85 Days)

This tomato was in Nebraska churches as both a garnish and a decoration predicting a prosperous marriage. The 4 inch, round, orange fruit have a fine flavor and grow abundantly. Newlyweds saved the seeds from their wedding tomatoes to start their farm lives. 

25 seeds

PLANTING

Solanum lycopersicum

Determinate

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.

Tomatoes and Peppers

Purchased the Nebraska Wedding tomatoes and the Johnny Nardello peppers which I put in my greenhouse. Came up real nice and have been planted out into the garden last week. Looking forwards to see how they do.

Exciting!

Seeds arrived in excellent condition. They were planted the very next day in seed starter kit. They were breaking through by day 5 and the dicots appeared the next morning. They will be transplanted into pots tomorrow and hardened off to go inyo the garden by early March. I am a happy gardener as usual with Pinetree seeds!
