PRUDENS PURPLE TOMATO (72 days) (HEIRLOOM)

HEIRLOOM Indeterminate. This heirloom tomato is our favorite. Pruden's Purple is outstanding in every aspect. It is exceptionally early for a large tomato. Average fruit weighs 1 pound, is 4 inches across, and 3 inches high.Distinctive ridges, like the ribs of a cantaloupe, gird the fruit longitudinally. The color is more of a deep pink than a true purple. Flesh is firm and meaty and the flavor is wonderful. Remarkably, Pruden's Purple contain very few seeds. 25 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.
