Large plump 8-12 oz, bright yellow fruits start out with shiny green streaks with the skin fully ripening to a radiating golden color. A true beauty, like sunshine on a vine, with a flavor that is low in acid, smooth and sweet with a hint of citrus, said to be the best true yellow tomato.
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.
