Floradade Tomato (74 days) 

Introduced in 1976 by the Univ. of Florida

Floradade is a large determinant plant.  This tomato produces firm smooth 5-7 oz, slightly deep globes, red with green shoulders. 

This tomato was made for the South and thrives there.  Floradades ability to with stand 90-100F temperatures and still produce heavy crops is legendary.  Floradade was bred to excel in the heavy calcareous soils of Dade County Florida so yields may be reduced in highly sandy soils. 

Recommended by the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences.  "These seed varieties have been tested and proven resilient in the Florida backyard garden."

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.
