Amazing flavor, ripens in the PNW

I love Brandywine tomatoes, but they don't ripen early enough in the Pacific Northwest. Enter Genuwine. It's a lovely tomato with so many of the qualities of Brandywine, but it ripens well and doesn't split as much, either. It has been added to my "grow this one every year" list.

My favorite tomato on offer by Territorial

I have grown this tomato for the last three years and it has not failed to perform!! The first to germinate and it takes off when planted. These were the first to ripen with beautiful, pleated heirloom style HUGE tomatoes. One of my tomatoes was almost two pounds. Yes, they are prone to "cat face"� from faciated blossoms but to me, that adds to the wow factor of the few tomatoes that this happens to. I wish I could show pictures - they would blow your minds! I live in zone 7b Snohomish, WA. As long as Territorial sells this tomato I will be buying it!

Big fruit, horrible catfacing

So far, the tomatoes are setting well and are growing huge. However, I've had to chop off about half of my tomatoes because they catfaced terribly (like, totally pockmarked on bottom). I'm not having that issue with my Cherokee Carbons or Cherokee Purples that are planted in the same bed, and I can't quite figure out why it's happening here.

I'll probably skip this variety next year unless the taste just blows my socks off.

I live and garden in far Northern Wisconsin well into Snow Country where Winter temps can drop to minus 45 below zero. I am basically right on the border with Michigan's frigid U.P. (Yooper Country!) It is generally not safe to set out garden plants until the second week of June. Short growing season is the expectation and the norm.

When Summer does not us it is with a vengeance! Everything shows explosive growth! Years of experience have allowed me to select optimum garden varieties for my region's climate. I took a chance with the Genuwine tomato last season to see how it it would fare. The results were spectacular! Vigorous growth with very heavy fruit set. I grow my tomatoes in raised beds and by mid-season my Genuwine tomatoes were reaching 8-9 very high with full branches loaded with outstanding fruit! With over 58 years of gardening experience I can emphatically state that the Genuwine tomato is the best, most flavorful tomato I have ever experienced. Outstanding!

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

Insects & Diseases
Common insects: Flea beetles and tomato hornworms
Insect control: Pyrethrin or row cover for flea beetles, and Monterey B.t. for tomato hornworms
Common diseases: Early and late blight
Disease prevention: A strict 3-4 year rotation, remove vines at the end of the year, fungicide
