HEIRLOOM Indeterminate. An heirloom with a combination of orange and yellow stripes both inside and out. Very large, beefsteak type fruits are 5 inches in diameter with juicy, meaty flesh, and a fine mild flavor. We have produced fruit that exceeded 2.5 pounds. 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.
