Sustainably Grown Tomato Seed

Developed in Texas by Dr. H. C. Mohr at Texas A&M College in the 1960s as a processing variety, home garden and early market type.  "Performs particularly well on the High Plains of Texas and should be adapted to other dry climates."

A true Texas heirloom tomato.  Fruits weigh around 6 oz.  Plainsman is extra early and a heavy yielder of vivid red fruit with good globe shape and excellent quality.  Plant is small and compact so requires a minimum of space.  Foliage protects against sunburn better than most early types. 

One of the few truly Texas "born" tomatoes I know of.  There must be more!  Please email me if your family has a uniquely Texas tomato that has been in your family for generations.

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.
