Blanche du Quebec Tomato
Blanche du Quebec Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) After trialing a few different seed sources of this variety since 2017, we are most pleased with the seeds we received from a grower near Bathurst, NB. These heirloom tomatoes are a top pick from all of the yellow, low acid slicing varieties we grow. They are the first to go in salads, sandwiches and omelettes in our Revival farm kitchen. A fairly early ripening tomato of 70 days. Plants are determinate in growth. A very sturdy and prolific producer of medium sized (3") pale yellow fruits. This 'Bathurst strain' has very good disease resistance to leaf spot and early blight.
70-75 days to maturity
25 seeds per packet $3.50
Planting Instructions: Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost. Sow 1/4 inch deep and keep soil warm. Transplant into 1 inch cells or 2 inch pots at 1-2 leaf stage. Staking tomatoes (indeterminate) should be transplanted into 3-4 inch pots. Harden off plants for 4-5 days after risk of frost has passed, then transport outdoors.
