Wapsipinicon Peach Tomato ( 78 Days)

A two bite tomato with an unbelievably delicious nectar-like, juicy flavor. Your taste buds will surely melt and thank you when you put this tomato in your mouth. Named for a river in northeastern Iowa this tomato produces a plentiful supply of light yellow fruits with tinges of pink and a touch of fuzzy peach like skin. We definitely knew this was a keeper when our friend Nadine, a Pinetree employee, who isn't too fond of tomatoes really liked and enjoyed this variety. 

25 seeds

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.

I recommend this product

Pinetree seeds

Just started the wapsipinicon (gonna be a while before I spell that word right the first time) a week ago. Seeds have sprouted and are a few inches high. Far too early to tell whether this product will be a good choice , but so far so good.

Funny name, great taste

Wapsipinicon Peach is the best tasting yellow tomato ever! I’ve grown it successfully in the Denver, Colorado area and start from seed. It turns out hat Wapsipinicon is the name of an Iowa River.

Delightful Tomato!

Wapsipinicon is called the peach tomato for a reason: its skin is slightly fuzzy and often shaded pink, and it is remarkably sweet - a tomato that actually tastes like a fruit. After several years of growing it, I've concluded that it's best eaten out of hand, in the garden - the fruits are not very large, making this manageable. It doesn't freeze or cook very satisfactorily, but it's delicious in salads.

Fun and Tasty

Wonderful tomato. Any of you who've been veggie gardening for awhile know that saying you devote space to a variety and plant it every year is about the best compliment one can give. Highly recommend.
