Solanum lycopersicum

90 days. One of the two Bavarian heirlooms from Diane Ott Whealy’s family that started the Seed Savers Exchange and one of the varieties that started the heirloom tomato movement in the United States. Green shoulders are typical of progressively-ripening heirloom tomatoes in which photosynthesis takes place in the fruit, therefore enhancing flavor and nutrient profile.

How to grow it:  

Start seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before average last frost date. Thin to the strongest plant per pot. Transplant 36” apart in full sun near a trellis. Ripe tomatoes will not be fully red, but soft and pink with green shoulders.

Seed specs:

Packet size: 50 seeds minimum

Germ%: 90
