Golden Heart Tomato(Solanum lycopersicum) This is a selection from an Italian heirloom gifted to us from a 'seedy' friend and seasoned grower near Grand Rapids, Michigan. We have not been able to identify the variety, however, it appears to resemble many characteristics of the Golden Jubilee and or the Spanish Valencia. Indeterminate vines produce heart-shaped orange mid-large sized fruits with few seeds. A very flavourful variety with a citrusy tango zest. This is a smooth skinned fruit with firm texture and excellent foliar disease resistance. Requires support since it is a heavy producer well into fall.
75 days to maturity

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.
