Organic Pearson's Improved Tomato Seeds (90days)
Sustainably Grown Seed

1966 Burrell's Seed Catalog says about Pearson's Improved Tomato...
"A popular California sort though used extensively for shipping also.  Main crop in season; plants determinate with ample foliage for proper fruit protection. Fruits medium to large, semi-globe and of good red color.  Skin very tough.  Our experience with this sort leads us to believe it is one of the heaviest yielders yet introduced.  for this reason and because of its large, sold fruit is has become the favorite shipping sort in the Rocky Ford District.  this is a special item with us and our stock doesn't take a back seat for any we have tried."

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.
