Sustainably Grown/Approx. 25 seeds per pkg.

Semi-determinate Vines

Katja is a large pink slicer that not only bears early, but produces copious amount of large fruit that can easily weigh a pound or more.

Plants are semi-determinate which makes them perfect for those that want to get large fruits from a fairly compact plant.   

Perfect slicer. 

Note: We have been improving this line for earlieness and size.  As you will note below the original Katja was 3-5" in size.  Our line produces MUCH bigger tomatoes.

Our Friends at Seed Ambassadors say...
"Pink 3-5" slicer tomato, very early and reliable. Gorgeous and delicious, Originates in Sludjanka at the shores of lake Bajkal in Siberia, where it is grown outdoors. It is not clear whether it was developed by Katarina Konovna Sviatova (Katja) herself, or if it is an old Russian commercial variety, received from Søren Holt of Frøsamlerne (Danish seed savers) who received it from the Sviatova family in Siberia."

California Grown Heirloom Seed
Katja had little problem producing large fruits in cool nights.  Which can be a real challenge sometimes.  It beat out Brandywine coming in weeks ahead with some of the first big tomatoes of the season.  Like most tomatoes it is a heavy feeder, so if you want big fruits don't neglect Katja and she will make you proud!

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.
