Heirloom Cherry Tomato Seeds This is the heirloom cherry variety that has been around for a century. The indeterminate vines are not as phenomenally heavy yielding as some of the new hybrids, but yields are still good. Flavor is excellent, a bit more acidic than its modern counterparts, and size is just right--that of a ping pong ball. Non-genetically engineered seeds. Culture: For earliest harvest, sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost, keeping soil temperature in the mid-70's. Grow in full sun. Shift hardened transplants to garden shortly after last frost. Water regularly and fertilize when 6" (15 cm.) tall, and again in mid-summer. Stake or cage to save space.
Harvest: Pick carefully when richly colored and firm, but before fruit begins to soften.
Nutrition: Rich in calcium, iron, and vitamins A and C.
