Yellow Bell Tomato Seeds (66 days)

Sustainably Grown  Approx. 25 heirloom seeds

Indeterminate.  Regular leaf foliage. 
Yellow Bell is apparently a Tennessee family heirloom that has been passed down from generation to generation.  It made its way to the public in 1986. 

Yellow Bell produces 4-8 fruits per cluster.  The tasty yellow fruit is square or block shaped thus the name "bell" like a bell pepper.  Fruits average length in 3-6" and 1-1/2" in diameter.  Yellow Bell is great in salads, for paste, juice and making yellow catsup! Talk about a cool project for the kids or to impress your friends.  Who makes yellow catsup anymore and what a forgotten delight it is!

Our strain is particularly longer in length than the only other commercially available source of this hard to find tomato. 

California Grown Heirloom Seed
We virtually dry farmed this variety and so we didn't see the full production of this amazing yellow tomato.  However, even in dry farmed conditions we got a nice harvest.  Very vigorous vines that need staking. Early production that continued throughout the season at a steady pace.

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.
