STARTING SEEDLINGS

In early spring, start indoors about 6 to 8 weeks before outdoor night temperatures are reliably in the 50-55°F (10-13°C). Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep and 1 inch apart in a container of seed starting mix. Keep moist but not soggy, and very warm, 80°F (27°C). Provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant outside. When seedlings are 2 inches tall, transplant into individual 4 inch pots. Maintain at 70°F (21°C). Feed with half-strength fertilizer every 2 weeks until ready to plant. When nights reach 55°F (13°C), gradually acclimate to outdoor conditions. Plant these vigorous indeterminate climbers 3 feet apart into rich soil in full sun.

 

GROWING NOTES

Prepare soil well with compost and fertilizer. Plant tomatoes several inches deeper than they were growing in containers. Provide strong stakes or tall wire cages at planting time as these plants grow tall with heavy fruit loads. Mulch to provide the even moisture tomato plants need to prevent cracking. Don’t overwater once fruit begins to ripen.

 

HARVEST AND USE

Pick the pear-shaped fruits when fully colored for best flavor. Enjoy for sweet snacks any time. Sprinkle liberally in salads where their pretty shape and bright color add wonderful eye and taste appeal.
