Tangerine is a bright orange beefsteak tomato that makes an excellent slicer.  Its sweet, complex flavor is highly sought after in farmer's markets. 

1932 Burpee Seed Co says about Tangerine Tomato...
"This new main-crop tomato is as outstanding in quality as it is in appearance.  The fruits are large and heavy, measuring 4" in diameter.  The are as deep as they are high and inclined to be somewhat angular.  the thin skin is a beautiful rich orange-the color of a fully ripened tangerine.  The flesh is mellow golden yellow of appetizing appearance.  The flavor is delightful-rich and tasty, of a sub-acid piquancy that stimulates the appetite.  The vines make abundant growth."


ScienceDaily (Feb. 6, 2007) — "Research involving tomato sauce made from an heirloom tomato variety named the tangerine tomato has established that a specific chemical form of lycopene is more effective in increasing the levels of this much-heralded antioxidant in people's blood."

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.
