Planting & Care
Plant in soil that is rich in organic matter and free from weeds and other debris. Place in a spot that receives full sun and did not grow peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, or eggplants in the previous season. Plant in a hole that can accommodate the root ball. You can plant as deep as you like, all the way up to the leaves. The deeper you plant, the stronger the roots will become. Leave a depression in the soil around the base of the plant. Mulch to prevent weed growth and retain moisture. Water deeply to settle the roots, allowing a puddle to form in the depression.
Staking – place a stake in the ground 6 inches away from the plant. As your plant grows, choose 2 stalks to wrap around the stake. Prune away the rest of the stalks.
Caging – wrap a wire cage around your plant. There is no need to prune when caging.
Natural growth – if you do not place a cage or stake near your plant, it will naturally spread and grow along the ground. You will not need to prune, and you will likely get a higher yield.
Watering: Tomato plants need 1-2 inches of water each week. If you are not getting sufficient rain, water early in the morning close to the soil.
Fertilizing: Apply an organic 8-32-16 or 6-24-24 fertilizer every 3 weeks.
Pest Control: If you see any pests, spray with a steady stream of water. For other pest issues, consult a local expert to discuss organic solutions.
Harvesting: Beefsteak tomatoes are ready to harvest when they have reached their full red color and are firm to the touch. Vine-ripened tomatoes have a much more intense flavor, but you can ripen on the counter if necessary. Before the first frost, remove all the almost-ready tomatoes from the vine and ripen them on the counter.
Usage and Storing: Do not put your tomatoes in the fridge until they are fully ripened. Even then, it is not recommended. Instead, store in a very cool and dark place where the tomatoes do not touch. You can eat fresh or add to recipes. You can also can or dry unused tomatoes for the next season.
