Great tomato but still had some BER

These are a terrific tomato - huge healthy plants positively dripping with massive deep red fruits that make a great tasting sauce. The only real issue is keeping the plants upright under the weight! I still got some BER on around 5% of toms but maybe next year I'll sort that issue out. Where can I get seeds in Europe??

Great Tomato!

Great disease resistance for a Roma type. Very good production when grown in a 7 gallon container. Great for canning, and even for slicing it's better than anything from the supermarket.

Amazing production

These were high producing and beautiful tomatoes. We gave so many away and canned three shopping baskets mounded full. We had maybe 6/7 plants. Blossom end rot like I saw in another review is about managing your soil. We only had issues when the plant was still producing into the freezing temps. They just keep going and going with the same standard size tomatoes. Firm and easy to slice.

Great prolific paste tomato -BER problem

End rot was significant mid-way through fruiting but could cut it off and use rest of the tomato. Drenched roots 2 times with a large slurry of lime, after reading up on the internet, then watered well, two weeks apart and BER gradually disappeared for last fall harvesting. Also, kept green ones on my counter and continued to ripen into November.

Days to maturity are calculated from date of transplant.

Determinate tomatoes: grow compactly, sprawling laterally, usually do not require staking, and fruit ripens over a short period of time
Indeterminate tomatoes: grow on long vines, generally require pruning to 1 or 2 leaders that need to be trellised
• Fertile, well-drained raised beds covered with plastic mulch promote early growth and better yields
• Tomatoes are high feeders and will benefit from regular fertilization with Age Old Bloom
• To prevent blossom end rot use a high calcium amendment
• Overwatering can cause fruit to crack

Direct Sowing
• Not recommended

• Sow seeds in trays 6-8 weeks before anticipated transplant date; up-pot into 3-4 inch pots when the first set of true leaves appears
• Strong light and cooler temperatures (60-70°F) prevent plants from getting leggy
• Fertilize with Age Old Grow every 10-14 days
• When transplanting work in compost, 1/2 cup of TSC's Complete fertilizer, and handful of bone meal
• Determinates can be spaced 18-24 inches apart, indeterminates 24-36 inches apart
• Tomatoes can be buried up to the top 2 sets of leaves
• Use Kozy-Coats or Victorian Bell Cloches to protect young plants
