Wisconsin Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) Originally developed at the University of Wisconsin in the 1940's, recent selections have been very promising and have resurrected this wonderful slicing heirloom. Wisconsin shows very little shoulder cracking and blossom end rot. These are vigorous plants with good tolerance to defoliation diseases. Our trials have shown excellent resistance to early blight and leaf spot, particularly in 2021. Medium-large sized deep red fruit born on semi-determinate plants.

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.
