Oregon Spring Tomato (68 Days)

One of many excellent tomatoes released by Dr. Jim Baggett of Oregon State. Part of this breeding effort was to develop a variety which could be set out in very cool spring temperatures. They can go out in April if freezing can be prevented. Tomatoes are full sized, 4 inches across, with fine color and texture. Yields are high and flavor is great, nicely acidic. 

25 seeds


Solanum lycopersicum


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.

Oregon Spring

My experience was excellent as usual. I've been purchasing seeds from Pinetree for years. I haven't planted Oregon Spring for a while, but decided to this year. The seeds have germinated and are on their way to being productive plants. One of the reasons I like Pinetree is that as a home gardener, I can buy just enough seeds in a packet, at a reasonable price. I don't need 500 seeds---50 will do!

Great for cooler New England Climate

i have grown Oregon Spring for many years here in New England. I am always able to set these out earlier than any other tomato, and since they have such a short maturity they are always the first on the table. Good tomato flavor in smaller sized fruit.
