Yellow Out Red In (90 days)

Sustainably Grown  Approx. 25 heirloom seeds

You know I see this more as "Orange Out and Red In", but I didn't name it so all I can say is it is definitely unusual.  This tomato produces 6 oz. globes that are tart and lightly sweet.  Considered the best of the keeping tomatoes. 

What is a "keeping tomato" you may ask?  Well first off they are one of the last tomatoes in the garden to produce.  Which is exactly what you want!  Then you either pick the tomatoes or hang the whole plant upside down the the closet or root cellar.  It is that simple.  Their thick skins make them a great keeper in a cool environment.  So while your friends are eating canned tomatoes you will still have some hanging around!

A truly rare and hard to find tomato.  A perfect remedy to buying those tasteless hothouse grown tomatoes in December.  Plus it is sustainable compared to all that heating fuel for hothouse tomatoes or worse yet tomatoes flown from Chile. 


California Grown Heirloom Seed
This tomato had no problem producing tons of late season fruits here.  In fact it is November now as I write this and I'm still collecting tomatoes!  We have even had two minor frosts that didn't seem to stop it.

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.
