organic corn seedOrganic Tiger Tomato Seed (62 days)

Sustainably Grown/Approx. 25 seeds per pkg.

Indeterminate vines with regular leaves.

The Tiger Tomato is an all-time favorite of the Occidental Arts and Ecology Center located about 30 minutes away from here. It has been grown there since 1983.  Originally from Czechoslovakia.

These tomatoes remind me of "Tigger" in the stories of Winnie the Pooh.  They are so brilliant red with orange stripes that can't help but put you in a good mood.  You might even bounce around the garden when harvesting them, but probably not on your tail though ;) 

Highly productive and born in cluster of 8-10 tomatoes.  Always one of the earliest to ripen. Tiger has an almost tart and tangy flavor that will certainly make any salad pop.  Best cut up as sometimes the skin can be a bit thick for just popping in your mouth.  To imagine something so amazing could come from your garden and taste great too! 

California Grown Heirloom Seed
Tiger did well here producing copious amounts of tangy orange fruit towards the end of the early season for tomatoes.  Certainly was not effected by the cool nights here.  Would have probably produced even more with night time temps over 60 degrees.

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.
