This low-sugar, low-acid tomato has high solids content, excellent flavor, and makes the best sauce. Ask any true Italian! Also called the “sausage” tomato, it’s delicious on sandwiches. Slice diagonally and top with mozzarella slices and fresh basil leaves or pesto for a mouth-watering appetizer. Vigorous vines reach 6' or more.

When to sow outside: For mild climates only: 1 to 2 weeks before average last frost, and when soil temperature is at least 60°F.

When to start inside: RECOMMENDED. 4 to 6 weeks before transplanting. Transplant when air temperature is 45°F or warmer, usually 1 to 2 weeks after the last average frost date. Ideal soil temperature for germination is 70°‒90°F.

Harvesting: Harvest tomatoes when fully colored and firm. About 1 month before the average first fall frost, clip all blossoms and any undersized fruit off the plant. This will steer all the plant’s remaining energy into ripening what’s left. If you have a lot of unripe tomatoes near the end of the season and a frost is approaching, pick them and store them indoors in a single layer away from direct sunlight to ripen.
