POLBIG TOMATO (F1 hybrid 56 days)

4

VF1 & 2 Determinate. For decades we have been looking for an extremely early tomato that sets fruit in cool weather and also tastes good. Polbig may be the one. The compact plants produce round smooth fruit that have an excellent dark red color inside and out. Small but hardly tiny, Polbig tomatoes run between 3 1/2 and 6 ounces. Flavor is similar to good mid-season tomatoes, sweet and just a bit acidic. 15 seeds.

PLANTING:

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.

Very tiny seeds. Only got 11 instead of 15. I'll see what happens.

We don't plant tomatoes in January.

I've had no experience yet!! Near impossible to get the double-sealed packet open, but I did. Looks like about 16 seeds. I'll be seeding flats in April. So all I can give is an average 3 star. Whose bright idea was this feedback request on tomato seeds in winter, anyway??

Big Pol grows well @ 7500 feet in CO!

I started the seed in April and set the plants out in a bed with plenty of composted chicken manure in June. I kept the plants covered with row cover to protect them from our cold nights and with blankets for light frost. I picked most of them green and they ripened until the beginning of Nov. in boxes indoors.
