Nebraska Wedding Tomato (Heirloom 85 Days)

We suggest Pineapple Tomato as a replacement

 

This tomato was in Nebraska churches as both a garnish and a decoration predicting a prosperous marriage. The 4 inch, round, orange fruit has a fine flavor and grows 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 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.

Fun new-to-me variety

Grew Nebraska wedding tomato plants from Pinetree seeds this year - this was my first time trying this variety. They are prolific, bearing clusters of pinkish red tomatoes that are smaller than slicing tomatoes but larger than cherry tomatoes. In flavor, they have an initial acidity with a sweet finish, a nice addition to the caprese salads we enjoy every summer. I have found that I can’t grow finickier or less disease resistant varieties in my New England backyard garden - this variety is holding up well so far and will be included in my garden again next year along with other tried and true favorites Sungold, Japanese Black, Cherokee Carbon and Black Opal.

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!
