Tomato Seeds, UC 134
Click Image for Gallery
UC134 was developed by the University of California for high production of processing tomatoes, especially sauce, Catsup, peeled whole tomatoes and juice. It is part of the 1980s generation of varieties that while hard enough to mechanical harvest, has high solids and if allowed to fully ripen a true tomato flavor. I remember picking this from the fields before or after harvest and eating the truly ripe fruit and really enjoying them. This tomato is very early, a small bush that in areas with rainfall during growth should have the fruit kept off the soil, but in southern or dry areas need not. Most fruit will ripen over a very short time, but in some climates you can do the main pick and then pull the plants and hang indoors for fruit after frost. Resistant to fusarium and verticilium. The plants can either be direct seeded or transplanted, bu I strongly recommend transplants for few weed problems, lower water usage and very fast growth. Determinate. Untreated seed.
