Prairie Glow (Solanum lycopersicum)This is another unique variety gifted to us from Stan Zubrowski of Prairie River SK. A really nice slicing and dicing tomato that is thick-skinned and durable. No cracking or BER noted on fruits and foliar disease was minimal in both of our trials. Fruits are medium sized, semi-oblong, ripening to a fiery orange around 70 days. An indeterminate vine that produces consistent fruit well into mid October here in Nova Scotia. One of our favourites in the kitchen this year!

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. Transplant outdoors once day and night temperatures are consistently above 10 degrees Celsius.
