Floradade or Floridade Heirloom Tomato Seeds B204

Floridade Tomato Seeds
The Floradade tomato is a disease-resistant variety developed by the University of Florida at their Homestead facility in the 1970’s. As such, it is particularly suited to warm and humid climates. The Floradade tomato is a favorite of home gardeners and professional growers in warmer climates. Heirloom tomato, non-hybrid.
This variety is much easier to grow in the deep south than many others!
Start tomatoes indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost of spring, sowing the seeds in a flat 1/4" deep and 1" apart. Keep the temperature at 70-75 degrees F until germination, as well as providing adequate light in a sunny window or under a grow light; keep the soil moist, but make sure drainage is adequate. When the second set of leaves emerges, transplant the seedlings into individual pots; bury the stems up to the lowest set of leaves to grow strongly rooted plants.
