Organic Heinz 1630 Tomato (80-85 days)

The H.J. HEINZ Company began a tomato breeding program in 1936 at Bowling Green, Ohio.

This old variety is one that is no longer used by the Heinz company for production.

1630 is similar to 1350(VF) but, is earlier, has better cracking resistance, fruit is generally, smaller, resistant to fusarium and verticillium wilt, & stemphylium.

The plant has very dense foliage and would be classified as determinant or semi-deter.

The fruit is born in clusters of 3-4 and are 4-7 oz in size. 

The skin is thick and the flesh meaty

Very prolific and tends to all ripen at the same time late in the season.

EXCELLENT tomato taste.  Very acidic and exactly what you would want in a canning tomato for ketchup, sauce or soup.

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.
