Solar Flare Tomato (Organic, 85 Days)

Part of our Wild Boar series. Venture into this new world of gourmet tomatoes and we guarantee that you will be excited, practically sleeping near the plant, lingering, waiting for them to ripen; that moment you finally get to slice your first fruit open. Brad Gates, owner of Wild Boar Farms is a small organic farmer and passionate tomato breeder out of northern California. Using genetics and the natural mutations of heirloom varieties he selected and experimented, creating exotic, open pollinated tomatoes with many amazing color combinations, shapes, sizes, and taste. These are the heirlooms for future generations.

Golden metallic stripes flare from the top and bottom of the bright red, 6-10 oz beefsteak type fruit. Excellent production continues to the end of the growing season with good scab resistance. We loved the luscious, flavorful taste of this one, having a perfect balance of sweet and acid.

PLANTING

Solanum lycopersicum

Indeterminate

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.

    Awesome Flavor

    This one was new to me this year and I'm reordering for next year now, to make sure I get them. Wow! I grew them from seed under grow lights, set them out as plants in early April in my Zone 7B garden, and they took off and produced early with truly delicious flavor that my husband and I enjoyed fresh every day. I also froze some cut up tomatoes to enjoy all winter. Try these, you won't be disappointed. One of my new favorites.
