If you are like most gardeners, you love fresh-picked, vine-ripened tomatoes almost more than anything else. Here is a collection that will allow you to try a range of old & important heirloom varieties in a range of sizes, colours & flavours. Included are Red & Yellow Pear, Black Prince, Amish Paste, Mountain Princess, Jubilee, Pruden’s Purple, Cosmonaut Volkov, and Earlirouge.
Seeds need to be started indoors 6-7 weeks before last frost. Sow 1/4" deep in a light soil mix; harden off & plant out 24 - 48" apart, in not too rich a soil, after all danger of frost is over. Tomatoes benefit from staking.
