Heirloom Tomato, Giant Belgium Pink Seeds
Germination test date and results will be on packet.
Heirloom tomatoes are big on flavor and color, but less resistant to disease and more irregularly shaped than bred-for-perfection hybrid varieties. "Giant Belgium" is a pink heirloom that produces sandwich-sized fruits from 1 to 2 pounds each that are low-acid and sweet, if a bit lumpy and green at the shoulders. Because this cultivar has a longer growing season than some other heirlooms -- up to 90 days -- it is not suitable for cool, foggy microclimates.
6-8 weeks before last frost:
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).
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.
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.
