Organic Tomato SeedsOrganic Wheatley's Frost Resistant Tomato Seeds (59 days)

Sustainably Grown  Approx. 25 heirloom seeds

Indeterminate vines with regular leaves.

1957 "Obtained from South Africa growing which is reported to withstand as high as 6 degrees frost."

A true cold-weather tomato, this plant survived several very cold nights and a fall frost that killed nearly all others in our trial gardens. It should be mentioned the "frost resistance" is in an adult plant.  When I set them out in the spring as seedlings they froze just like the other tomatoes. So I would say the "frost resistance" is fall frost.

Wheatley’s is a very productive indeterminate cherry-type plant. The fruits are about 2” in length and 1” wide and very firm. They are borne in clusters of 8-10.  Super tasty!

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.
