German Johnson Heirloom Tomato Seeds bin6

German Johnson Tomato Seeds
 
An heirloom, indeterminate variety from West Virginia that turns deep red-pink as it ripens on the vine. This open-pollinated tomato takes 78 to 80 days from the time it is transplanted out in the garden to produce its tasty one-pound beefsteak type tomatoes. The large fruits have a firm texture and few seeds, ideal for slicing fresh or canning. Start German Johnson tomatoes from seed indoors about one month before expected last frost.
 
6-8 weeks before last frost:
  1. Fill 4" pots with potting mix to within a 1/2-inch of the top and place a pair of seeds on top of the soil in each one near the center of the pot (having two is good insurance in case one doesn’t sprout. Pinch off the smaller, weaker of the two if they both sprout).
  2. Cover them with a ¼-inch layer of soil mix and the compress the soil with your fingers. Good seed-to-soil contact is important for germination.
  3. Sprinkle water on the seeds whenever the top of the soil mix appears dry. Don’t keep the soil soggy, however — the seeds may rot.
