Earliest tomato of all in our trials,
and the most tolerant of really bad conditions.
Unusually adaptable--if you haven't been able to grow tomatoes, this is the one for you.
Good in cool or fluctuating weather, drought-resistant, starts bearing early and bears till frost.
2" red fruits have lots of tangy flavor for a cool-weather type. Amazing yields over a long season. Good for drying, uniform and prolific.
Indeterminate but small, potato-leaved vines to 3 or 4 feet.
BOTANICAL NAME: Solanum lycopersicum
Start in flats or pots 2 months or so before setting out. Transplant into well-composted soil after danger of frost is past. Set plants several inches deeper than in the pot-they will root along the stem. Greedy feeder-needs ample amounts of compost or decomposed manure. Needs lots of potassium, phosphorous, but not as much nitrogen. Needs calcium to prevent blossom-end rot; use gypsum or bone meal if necessary. Keep soil most in dry weather with periodic, deep watering and mulch.
