Green Grape Tomato Seeds (78 days)
 

Sustainably Grown

Semi-determinate almost bush habitat.  The true indeterminate line was introduced in 1983 by Tom Wager of Tater Mater Seeds in Bakersfield, California. 

Tom's catalog described it as "green when ripe fruit with the appearance of Thompson seedless grapes.  Very sweet, oblong, cherry-sized fruit grows in large clusters and many are seedless.  Only 10% of the seed of other cherry tomatoes."

Hands down this has to be the absolute favorite cherry size fruit of almost every tomato lover that comes through our gardens.  People can't get enough of them.  They are truly sweet, with very little acid or tang.  Fantastic fresh eating or the perfect size for salads.  No slicing required!

Green Grape's average fruit size is about 1-3/8" in diameter and are held in clusters of 6 to 12 juicy green tomatoes.  If you pick them too early they can taste sour.  They are fully ripe when just barely starting to turn a golden yellow in my opinion anyway :) 

The famous tomato expert Carolyn Male wrote a book called 100 Heirloom Tomatoes for the American Garden.  She has this to say about green grape "First time growers of green grape have a tendency to fall in love with it after only one season.  When you experience the unique spicy sweetness associated with green tomatoes for the first time, it's easy to become addicted." 

California Grown Heirloom Seed
Last year green grape did splendid and there was plenty for all to be had.  This year because we had a cool summer, green grape didn't not perform all that well at our primary location.  I'm of the mind they like the type of heat from which they came from in the Central Valley.  Growing things on the coast can be a bit tricky, but the dry farm location had a bumper crop and it is only 12 miles from the coast!  Go figure.

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.
