Striped German Tomato Seeds (78 days)

Sustainably Grown  Approx. 25 heirloom seeds

Indeterminate vines with potato leaves.  Striped German tomato is the most colorful tomato I think we grew this year!  Not to mention all the crazy shapes it grows into and then there is the flavor.  You just can't go wrong.  The flavor is very complex, almost fruity.

Striped German tomato needs good staking though.  Those beauties can weigh 1-2 pounds and with a vine full of them most stakes will break or fall over.  Trust me, I know first hand ;)

California Grown Heirloom Seed
I loved going to look for the amazing shapes, sizes and colors of Striped German.  Was super easy to grow.  No problems here.  Just need far better support system next year.  One vine can literally have 30-40 lbs hanging off it!

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.
