Sustainably Grown  Approx. 25 heirloom seeds

Indeterminate vines with regular leaves.

Riesentraube literally means "giant bunch of grapes".  This tiny little tomato hails from Germany.  These tomatoes are like few others I've seen.  They produce this huge spray of yellow flowers containing 200-300 blooms! 

Riesentraube produces tomatoes about an ounce in size and blood red in color.  Carolyn Male says in her book 100 Heirloom Tomatoes for American Gardens..."Riesentraube evokes a broad spectrum of flavor components that you just don't expect in a cherry tomato.  The taste is very full, like that of a beefsteak.  Amazingly intense tomato taste, not sweet, just superb!"

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.
