150 Organic Homestead Tomato Seeds Heirloom

Heirloom Homestead is a red fruited tomato that sets fruit well under high temperatures and is uniform in size. A very good tomato for the southern gardener as it produces well in the heat. Vigorous plant which offers good fruit protection. Tomatoes weighing 7-8 ounces. Make it a perfect tomato for canning. 80 days. Determinate.

A cousin of the “Floradade”, the Homestead Tomato is another variety that is particularly well suited to warm and humid environments. However, the Homestead is also very successfully grown by home vegetable gardeners and commercial growers throughout more temperate regions of the United States. Plant Homestead Tomato seeds and enjoy a delicious and bountiful feast.

Sowing: Start tomatoes indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost of spring, sowing the seeds in a flat 1/4" deep and 1" apart. Keep the temperature at 70-75 degrees F until germination, as well as providing adequate light in a sunny window or under a grow light; keep the soil moist, but make sure drainage is adequate. When the second set of leaves emerges, transplant the seedlings into individual pots; bury the stems up to the lowest set of leaves to grow strongly rooted plants. A week before planting the seedlings outside, begin exposing them to the weather during the day to harden them; tomatoes cannot endure cold weather, and should not be transplanted outside until all threat of frost has passed. When the soil temperature reaches at least 70 degrees F, plant the seedlings in full sun and very rich soil; once more, bury the entire stem up to the lowest set of leaves. Space the plants 2' apart. For companion planting benefits, plant tomatoes with carrots or onions, but avoid planting them with cabbage or tomatoes.

Growing: Since temperatures below 55 degrees F can damage production, protect the plants if temperatures drop. A thick layer of mulch helps conserve moisture and control weeds; water the plants once a week, but avoid getting the leaves wet. Determinate, or bush type tomatoes, do not require staking.



All multiple orders of the same seed are put in the same bag. For example if you order 500 beefsteak tomato seeds x 3 then 1500 seeds will be put in the same bag. We do not send out 3 individual bags with 500 in each. This goes for all seeds unless they are listings of different seeds.
