If the name doesn't get you, the results will! Tasty Wine tomatoes are an almost-burgundy-red dwarf tomato variety brought to us by the Open Source Seed Initiative and the Dwarf Tomato Project. Combining traditional tomato varieties to create sturdy plants with a thick central stem and a determinate growth habit, amateur plant breeders went in a quest for fabulous colour and flavour. They found it, and Tasty Wine is one of the results of this initiative. Is it tasty? Experts agree that these beefsteak-type, mid-sized tomatoes are as yummy as anyone could wish.

  • Growing Information

    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.

    Tasty wine seedlings

    My seedling Tasty Wine tomatoes are only 4 weeks old but first thing to notice is that they have rounded leaves that don’t look like tomatoes at all. That’s because they are a dwarf selection of the Brandywine tomato that is a beefsteak solid textured fruit and also has unusual leaves! Still I’m looking forward to their development. Good germination and early growth though.
