organic tomato seedsOrganic San Marzano SHORT Vines

Approx. 25 heirloom tomato seeds

Determinate tomato vines (short vines)

(these tomatoes are the type that pickers like because they are easy to reach and become ripe for harvest around to the same time)

San Marzano is from Italy originally, but does extremely well here in California. 

Nice, short, determinate vines produce heavy yields of bright red, 2-3 inch, 5-6 ounce, plum-type fruit over a long season. 

San Marzano is the premier canning tomato in Italy, with heavy walls, very few seeds, and little juice. This is still the canning industry's choice in Italy. 

Recommended by the Following State Universities or Ag Extension Offices as a variety that performs well for their region . TX

Planting Tips for Heirloom Tomatoes:

Most gardeners want to get the most out of these delicious heirloom tomatoes and therefore give them a head start on the growing season.  Start these vegetable seeds indoors in sterile potting mix being sure to keep the temperature above 70 degrees.  Some people prefer to use a grow pad but the top of the fridge has been known to be quite effective as well. 

Once the first true leaves appear on your tomato seedlings, transplant into 4" pots until you have completely hardened them off in the garden.  Hardening is a process of exposing the plants more and more to outside temperature until they are hardy enough to tollerat a complete outdoor move.  Generally speaking, by early summer heirloom tomatoes should be transplated into the garden.

Most heirloom varieties are quite productive and will greatly benefit from sturdy supports.  It may also be advisable to add blood and bone to the worked soil to help ensure healthy productive heirloom tomatoes.

Seed Care tips for Heirloom Tomato Seeds:

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.

    Have sucessfuly grown 6 plants which grow very aggressively in zone 7b, despite a very late June transplant. So aggressively, in fact, that I'm wondering if they'll stop, as these are advertised as determinate. Four of them are topping the 4 foot mark and the fruit is still setting and ripening at intervals. Still, the first batch of fruit resulted in some dang tasty sauce, and if the caterpillars would stop attacking all the fruits I'd have a lot more than 8oz of sauce right now.
