Tomato Seed - Dark Colors

Dark colored tomatoes tend to have a deep, rich flavor ranging from smooth to spicy, and are often tops in taste tests. Tomatoes prefer a long hot season. Start indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost in very warm soil (80-90F) kept just moist. Once germinated, allow soil to dry slightly but don't allow the plant to wilt. After true leaves begin to develop, continue growth in moderate temperatures (60-70), to slow growth. Transplant outside after frost and soil and night time temperatures begin to warm. Space determinate (bush) varieties 18-24 inches apart, and indeterminate (vining) ones 24-36 inches apart, in rows 3-4 feet apart. Best fruit production is when soil moisture is even, and phosphorus rich fertilizer is used. Amend with calcium to avoid blossom end rot.
