Fried Green Hybrid Tomato (79 days)

One of our good friends bred this tomato to stand the rigors of frying or cooking.  

How many times have you had a soggy fried green tomato?  YUK!  Or you have to pick them so young to get them firm enough that the taste is just sour.  Well, Fried Green takes care of all that.  

It's a 7-10 oz green tomato that is best harvested when it gets slightly yellow.  

The flavor is almost like a green apple.  Yes, it still taste like a tomato, but its more sweet than sour/tart like other green tomatoes.  

The flesh is very firm standing up to the frying pan and the oven.  

Yes, Friend Green makes the most amazing tomato tarts!

This is the perfect tomato use in any dish that requires you to cook the tomatoes.  

And if this wasn't enough they last forever in cold storage.  We picked some in October and it's now February and the flesh is still perfect!  Who knows how long they will last.  

If you bake or fry tomatoes this is one NOT to miss.

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 tolerate 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 meal 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 - don't let the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely, and don't overwater and possibly have them rot.
