25 heirloom tomato seeds per pkg



Introduce by Gill's Seed Company Portland, OR in 1939

1939 catalog says...

"We now introduce a tomato with flesh the deepest red in color yet found.  One that is heavy bearing, long keeping, globe shaped.  It is sure to be a valuable shipping and canning variety.  Fruits picked entirely green will develop into ripe fruits of excellent qualitya and bright blood red when cut."

In our field test we found a great deal of variation in this seed line, but wanted to release it since eveyone was impressed with the flavor at the farm.  It is meaty and sweet.  Borne in clusters of 4.  Good production.  We will continue to improve this line.

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.
