Burpee's Tabletalk is said to have been a single plant selection from Marglobe and released by Burpee in 1941. Listed prominently on many Burpee catalog covers and was reported to be their top variety in 1943. Burpee's Tabletalk has 4-6 oz, deep globe shaped fruit with a solid meaty interior. Very similar to Marglobe with fantastic crack resistance.  Was extremely popular for many years especially on the East Coast.

1944 Burpee Seed Catalog said about Burpee Table Talk Tomato....
"A new all-purpose tomato.  The fruit, unusual in that it combines a large size with deep globular form, averages 7-8.5 oz.  The shoulder is smooth, there is little or no depression at the stem end and the scar is quite small-in other words, it is refined in spite of its size.  The color is bright scarlet, uniform and attractive.  Slice Burpee's Table Talk and you will marvel at the structure and the firmness of its interior.  The plant is short stemmed and bushy, but with no self-topping tendency.  The leaves are small and set closely together, dark green, thick and fir in texture, forming a dense mass of foliage which protects the fruit."

California Grown Heirloom Seed
Burpee Table Talk was very prolific in our gardens producing many, firm tomatoes just bigger than a golf ball.  Some get larger and I want to start selecting those over the next few years to improve the line.

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.
