Auld Sod Tomato Seed (62 days)  Sustainably grown seed

Approx. 25 seeds per pkg.

Determinate, small bushy plants produce plum shaped, red fruits that are firm walled with some tang.  Huge  early yields and some blight resistance.

This is a very dry tomato that would do well for drying and concentrating the flavor. 
Nice low acid flavor. Great to make pastes from or add to soups, but not a good fresh eating tomato because it is so dry.  This is why it makes a premier drying tomato. 

california seed California Grown Seed
Irish heirloom that grows well outdoors there and here on the Pacific Coast, seed stock originally from the Irish Seed Savers Association.
  This tomato performed extremely well in our coastal California gardens and despite the cool nights around 55 degrees still produced loads of fruit.  I highly recommend this tomato for the fogging Bay Area!

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.
