TOMATO – Prosperity

(50 seeds)

$3.95

(7 customer reviews)

A very special heritage tomato

“Prosperity” is such a special tomato that it has been preserved in the Biodiversity Heritage Library. An authentic variety from the Andes mountains, it lives up to its name with a heavy harvest of fruit. If you are tired of tomatoes that are “all water”, you’ll enjoy the fleshy fruits. They still have enough juiciness to appeal to those who want a tomato to squirt when you bite into it. The fruits are borne in clusters ensuring a good harvest of firm, medium-sized fruits.

How to Sow

Tomatoes are best sown in trays about 6-8 weeks prior to the last frost. Sow seeds about 5mm deep and keep the soil temperature to about 20 celcius until germination. Once the plants have grown their second leaves the seedlings can be transplanted into larger individual pots. Keep the tomato seedlings in a warm sunny position and maintain moisture levels. When planting out, position the plants so that soil covers the entire stem up to the first leaves. This will increase root development and ensure a healthy strong plant. Plants should be placed in full sun and rich soil.

How to Harvest

Tomatoes ripened on the vine will be ready once they show their mature colour. The fruits can also be squeezed and should yield slightly when ripe. If frost occurs and temperatures drop late in the season all tomatoes can be picked. Tomatoes that do not ripen on the vine can be ripened indoors by being placed in a warm place out or direct sun.
