Forest Fire Tomato Seeds (55 days
 

  Sustainably grown seed

 Determinate Vines

Crazy early tomatoes borne on bushes that in our trial gardens were almost non-existent.  Really, it seemed like mounds of tomatoes sprouted up on 9" tall vines with few leaves.  If you don't have great amounts of space and want an early producer Forest Fire Tomato is for you.  Perfect for city gardens, wine barrels or patio gardening.  Forest Fire also makes an amazing hanging basket for those short on space or have trouble bending over. 

Forest Fire holds up extremely well to boxing and stores for an extended period for an heirloom tomato.  Excellent for market growers who truck their produce to stands.

Forest Fire tomatoes are about 3" and have a great flavor.  These heirloom tomatoes are reported to do extremely well in cool coastal and mountain climates.  They certainly did well here on our cool California coastal zone even with the freak cold spells we had this spring/summer.    From Peters Seed Research.

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.
