Homestead Tomato

A semi-determinate variety that is very heat tolerant and reliably sets fruit in high temperatures. Mid-sized 8 to 12 oz red tomatoes have great flavor and are ideal for sandwiches, salads, and preserving. Crack resistant.

Start indoors 10-12 weeks before setting outside.  Keep growing medium between 70-80°; tomatoes love heat.  When first true leaves emerge, transplant the seedling into a larger container, burying the seedling deeply to encourage strong roots. Harden off plants and transplant outdoors into fertile, well-drained soil.
