Kellogg's Breakfast Tomato is an heirloom, open-pollinated tomato variety that originated in West Virginia and was later given its name by a gardener in Michigan. It was given the name "breakfast tomato" due to the bright orange color of the delicious flesh and juice. The indeterminate plants are very productive throughout the warm-growing season.

Kellogg's Breakfast Tomato produces massive fruits that can easily average 1-2 lbs. The fruits are bright yellow to orange with a slightly-flattened shape that is characteristic of beefsteak, heirloom tomato varieties. The yellow to orange color makes this tomato less acidic than red varieties. It has a nice balance of sweetness with just a hint of acidity.

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.

All seeds germinated

All of my seeds germinated 7 days after planting. All are in great condition and are almost ready for transplant.

Overwhelmed with yellow.

These seeds arrived early and in excellent condition. I look forward to watching these seedlings grow into tomatoes. that live up to the hype.

Good but low yielding.

I only got 2 tomatoes from 2 plants. The tomatoes I got were very good and sweet tomatoes. Just low yielding, I couldn’t get them to pollinate, even with an electric toothbrush vibrating the flowers.
