Tasty, smooth, firm tomatoes! An open-pollinated heirloom.
Plant deeply, burying 2/3 of the stem. Stake or cage for the best results. Moisture is critical to prevent cracked fruits and blossom end rot. Mulch soil to reduce water evaporation. Harvest when perfectly ripe tomatoes show deep color but still feel firm when gently squeezed. 6-ounce fruit.
Determinate tomatoes are varieties that grow to a fixed mature size and ripen all their fruit in a short period, usually about 2 weeks. Determinate tomato varieties are often referred to as “bush” tomatoes because they do not continue growing in length throughout the growing season.
Suggestions: To keep fruit clean and easier to pick, support with stakes or cages. Tomatoes require at least an inch of water per week.
