Polish Heirloom. The intense flavor is tangy and strong but also very sweet. It is a heavy yielder on potato leaf vines. Plants are huge and covered with the beefsteak red fruit. It should be picked at the first sign of maturity and while many fruits will be perfect others will be misshapen or cracked. Many growers put up with this in exchange for the remarkable flavor. One pound fruit are picked in the late-mid season.
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.

Such hardy seedlings quickly grew to tall, narrow plants perfect for my small garden. I'm enjoying the unusual-shaped leaves and anxiously awaiting the first fruit.
A good size tomatoe with outstanding taste. Should be in every garden.
Good tomato flavor with no acidity. I always plant these tomatoes and bears a good harvest.
