Indeterminate, regular leaf

Also known as Livingston's Honor Bright.  This variety is prized by market growers and homesteaders alike, as it can be picked in the early stage of ripening, when the fruit is very firm, and stored for 1-4 weeks if kept in a cool place.  It will be soft and delicious when it ripens, with plenty of tanginess and classic tomato flavor.  It's easy to tell when you should pick it for shipping or storage, as the small/medium round fruit  turns from creamy white to yellow and finally red with a patchy golden brown blush as it ripens. This makes it a showy addition to a home garden, as the multicolored clusters of 4-8 fruit are quite decorative. The foliage is naturally a light green and develops yellow blotches- don't worry! This isn't a sign of poor nutrition, as it is in other tomato plants. Discovered as a sport of Livingston's Stone tomato, Honor Bright was introduced by Andrew Livingston in 1897.

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.
