Belarus Orange Tomato Seed (76 days)

Sustainably Grown Tomato Seed

I believe the story or history of a seed like Belarus Orange Tomato is important to share.  I got this seed a few years ago from Lisa Von Saunder.  She collects endangered seeds from Amish Pennsylvania German families in the area and tries to preserve them.  Lisa also gets seeds from her friends in Russia.  Here is how she says Belarus Orange came about.  

"I received a wonderful surprise package of heirloom seeds from Andrey B. from Belarus, a former part of the Soviet Union until 15 years ago . It is situated between Russia and Poland and is in growing Zone 4A."  Andrey told Lisa  "I want you to present these great varieties to American and other foreign gardeners "

Sweet incredibly rich flavor.  Firm, thick, meaty, few seeds all packed in an amazing orange color.  Very, very productive!  Belarus has to be one of my favorite orange tomatoes!  Perfect for slicing. 


California Grown Heirloom Seed
Belarus Orange did extremely well here in the coastal range.  It was the earliest orange to start producing and didn't stop until the first freeze.  This was a favorite of the chef at the winery for the bright color and rich flavor.



Seed is in short supply.

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 tolerate 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 meal 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 - don't let the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely, and don't overwater and possibly have them rot.

    Grew the Belarus Orange tomato this year from seed and am now enjoying big, fat, meaty delicious tomatoes. It's like a slice of sunshine on your plate.

    Wonderfully sweet, plump orange fruit. I kept catching my husband out in the garden with a mouth full. Just as sweet as some of our cherry tomatoes!
