Grandma Mary's Tomato... VTO-5821



We have been wanting to find a good early paste tomato for a long time, and are pleased to offer this heirloom from Maine.

Meaty 6-10 oz fruits are big for such an early tomato, and ripen even in cooler summers.

Early. Indeterminate.
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. GROW BIOINTENSIVE® CULTURAL INFORMATION: H/Matures 8-13/Harvest 17+/Yield 100-418/Spacing 24" ADDITIONAL INFORMATION :

Good for Canning
on 04/03/17 by Patricia Barlow in Rigby, ID

I grew this variety of Roma type tomatoes and it had good yields and was quite large tomatoes for romas. I was pleased with the size and ease of use for canning, flavor wasn't as good as Amish Paste variety, but I would grow this again for the dependable yields and good size fruits.
