Monomakh Tomato Seed (72 days)

 

Sustainably Grown  Approx. 25 heirloom tomato seeds

Monomakh or Mononmakh's Hat hails from Novosibirsk, Siberia.  This tomato gets its name from a coronation crown that was worn by Russian Tsars such as Peter the Great. 

Monomakh produces large, red, tomatoes that weigh 8-16 oz.  The flavor is tangy and sweet.  The flesh has a smooth texture that is almost creamy. Medium production.


California Grown Heirloom Seed
It drove me nuts at first why this tomato always seemed to be thristy...lol...it was always drooping.  Turns out that this tomato has a "droopy foliage", but that has nothing to do with its production.  We dry farmed it like all the others and it did just fine.

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.
