First time growing tomatoes on the coast!

Started seed indoors, transplanted to large buckets into a small greenhouse. Coast gets a little chilly! Have grown close to 5' tall with tomato cages. Produces alot of fruit. Really tasty and low acid. Great to eat ripe tomatoes when my other slicers are still green. Disease free so far! Will grow these again next year.

Produced until frost with no blight

I love these tomatoes. They do take a long time to ripen but are worth it. Perfectly shaped, very sweet and great long keepers. These were in a spot that didn't get much sun by the fall and grew up into my pole beans but they kept on going and had zero disease.

Productive but late

Shrugs off the endemic late blight that completely killed my other tomatoes and damages my potatoes. Here on the foggy coast the fruit doesn't ripen until October, but then continues to deliver a big harvest through November and sometimes up to Christmas. Fruit is sweet and low-acid with a slightly thick skin, only reaching about 1" here. I grind them skin-on and freeze for sauce, which is flavorful and not as watery as bigger varieties.

Amazing for drying

Second year growing. Good production even in the face of the Heat Dome. Dried in a drier till quite crispy then into the freezer. Easy to break up for flakes or drop in soups. Agree that these are super sweet. Best drier!

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
