Cultivation: Start seeds inside 6 weeks before last frost date (or 8 weeks before expected transplanting date). Keep soil warm until emergence. Seeds will not germinate in cool soil and planting out too early may affect plant vigor. Harden off plants carefully before transplanting. Prepare fertile, well drained soil. Transplant in late spring/summer (soil temperatures at least above 60°F) in a very warm and sunny location. Plant so that soil level is just below the lowest leaves. Fertilize as needed. Train to a vertical support. Too much nitrogen will produce lush foliage and few fruits.
Please note: Maturity, adaptability and disease tolerance may differ under your specific climate and/or growing conditions.
Culinary tips: Prepare fresh or cooked. Use in stir-fries, soup or salad. Chefs love this tomato as the persimmon color makes beautiful sauce.
