PLANTING 

Germination: 7-14 days

 

Germination Temperature: Optimum soil temperatures 75-85 degrees F. Cooler soil temperatures increase germination time or results in poor germination.

Seed Sowing Depth: ¼” deep

Starting Indoors: 4-6 weeks before last frost. Sow seeds in flats/cells/pots. Provide 75-85 degrees F soil temperatures. After the first true leaves appears, transplant into larger, 3-6” pots/cells/flats . Fertilize the seedlings every 7-10 days with a liquid or water soluble fertilizer (diluted to ¼ of suggested measurement). Transplant seedlings 24-36” apart after last frost.  

How much does a packet plant: 30-40 foot single row    ( varies with seeds count)

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 throughout the growing season with good drainage. Plant deeper than they were growing in the containers, 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.

All time worst tomato

I usually only write positive reviews of products, but this tomato was so hideously awful I feel people should be warned. I till lime into the soil, no none of my tomato varieties get blossom end rot. Except this one! And then eventually, the plants produced a few small tomatoes. Unfortunately, they were hollow, and watery/seedy, not at all like a good paste tomato,

Dieci dita di Napoli

Very happy with production. Grew in 5 gallon buckets with drainage holes in spagnum, vermiculite, sand, perlite substrate. Fertilized with GH for flower production (1 part grow, 2 parts micronutrients, 3 parts flower) at between one quarter and one half strength. We had a very wet summer. Towards the end of August, when the fruits we're ripening, we had some late blight. It did not interfere with fruit. Staked plant grew ten feet high. So much for semi-determinate! Tomatoes are great for sauce and not bad for eating out of hand. Will grow more next year.
