HEIRLOOM early 1900s Indeterminate. The 5 to 7 ounce fruit are a bit fuzzy, both on the foliage and on the tomatoes. The flavor of the abundant yields is excellent and very sweet. Color is an attractive mottled orange and yellow. Introduced by the English company Sutton Seeds about 100 years ago. Very disease resistant. 25 seeds.
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.
