80 Days to Harvest
10-16 oz. fruits (Beefsteak sized)
Plants 2’-3’ apart unstaked, 1’-2’ staked
One of our absolute favorite every day tomatoes, this is a Russian heirloom with deep dark color and flavor. They get darker with more heat and sunlight. Great juiciness for salads, sandwiches, sauces, and any tomato dish you can think of.
Tomatoes grow best in rich fertile soil with regular water. Too much nitrogen will cause plants to put on lots of leaves but delay fruiting. Staking or caging allows closer spacing, helps keep fruit off the ground and away from a number of pests, and improves air flow, helping to keep disease pressure down. Pruning will also aid in air flow and help fruit ripen earlier.
