Growing Information

Tomatoes are in the nightshade family along with peppers and eggplant. Plants in the nightshade family are susceptible to blossom end rot, which is a result of a calcium deficiency. To prevent or alleviate this problem, apply pelleted gypsum at the base of the plant at bloom set. Tomatoes do best when transplanted, as the germination time can be longer than most vegetable seed. They grow very well in our heavy-duty seed starting trays. Plants should be started 4-6 weeks before the intended outdoor planting date.

If conditions outside are favorable, transplants may be planted directly from our 162 cell trays. If conditions are still too cold for planting tomatoes, transplants may be "stepped-up" to 4" pots to allow more room to grow. Tomatoes can produce heavy fruits and will require some form of support to keep the plant upright. This ensures that plants and fruits stay off the ground, reducing the possibility of disease and keeping fruits clean.

This is my top performing indeterminate and I have grown it since 2013. Out produces any heirloom and taste is good to me. This one produces a long time.

These are my top producing indeterminates. Many varieties have come in gone in my garden but these have survived my tests for 9 years. I grow fewer indeterminates and grow fewer heirlooms as the hybrids produce more for me. I grow all slicers (1 exception) and eat them by themselves or on sandwiches and then I can them as sauce and salsa and no longer grow paste tomatoes other than Amish paste. I find that my slicers cook and can well and are more versatile because paste tomatoes do not taste good by themselves. Last year I grew only 3 indeterminates and Big Beef is one of those and will grow again next year.

Germination hasn't been very good so far. I reseeded a few growing pots that didnt come up.
