 Pierce's Pride Tomato Seeds (85 days)

Sustainably Grown  Approx. 25 heirloom seeds

Indeterminate vines with regular leaves.

 

Created by seedsman Larry Pierce. 

Pierces Pride tomato has a rich, deep black-red color.

Fruits can reach up to a pound or slightly more. 

The flavor is so rich, mild, sweet, lightly tangy with a true tomato flavor finish. 

Heavenly on a BLT sandwich.

This was one of my absolute favorites this year for flavor! 

California Grown Heirloom Seed
I love Pierce's Pride!  It started producing early in the season even though the summer was still cool at night and didn't stop until September.  Technically, it is a "mid season" tomato, but we got 3 months production from it easy.  And produce it did!  I would put this in the top 10 of our 150 variety grow-out this year for heavy production.

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.
