Orgnic Earl of Edgecomb Tomato Seeds (73 days) 

Sustainably Grown  Approx. 25 heirloom seeds

Semi-Indeterminate.  Regular leaf foliage.  The story of this tomato starts back when the sixth earl of Edgecomb died.  This is a long story that Carolyn Male tells best in her book 100 Heirloom Tomatoes for the American Garden. 

Unlike many orange tomatoes the Earl of Edgecomb has a distinct, robust flavor with very few seeds.  (Bad for me.  I have to collect lots to get the tiniest amount of seed!)  This tomato is meaty, juicy, tart, sweet and rarely cracks.  The fruit is borne in clusters of 3 to 5 tomatoes and weight up to 10 ounces.  The yield is excellent. 

California Grown Heirloom Seeds
The Earl of Edgecomb did exceedingly well here.  In fact it was still producing just fine when the first frost made it here.  That is saying something because production started back in June!

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.
