Tomato Pole Moneymaker Organic HEIRLOOM Seeds

Lycopersicon lycopersicum

Item #3156

75-80 days from transplanting. A very popular variety for commercial growers in the 1950s and 1960s—Moneymaker earned its name because of its uniformity and reliably heavy yields. The medium-sized fruits have sweet flavor and meaty texture, making them versatile for use in fresh or cooked dishes. A good choice for greenhouses as well as outdoors. A favorite of southern gardeners and those in climates with hot, humid summers.

This packet yields approximately 24 plants when started indoors.

Days to Emerge:
5 - 10 Days

Seed Depth:
1/8”

Seed Spacing:
A group of 3 seeds every 24"

Row Spacing:
3’

Thinning:
When 2" tall, thin to 1 every 24"


When to sow outside: Recommended for mild climates only: 1 to 2 weeks before average last frost and when soil temperatures are at least 60°F.

When to start inside: RECOMMENDED. 4 to 6 weeks before average last frost. Provide adequate light to produce sturdy plants. Transplant plant when night temperature is above 45°F, and soil temperature is at least 75°–90°F.

Harvesting: Moneymaker tomatoes are at the peak of sun-ripened deliciousness when they are fully red, and have a slight give when gently squeezed. 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.
