Tomato, Deutsche Fleiss (Organic)

Solanum lycopersicum. 70 days. Indet. Potato leaf.

Huge amounts of 1 1⁄2-2” perfect ball-shaped fruit form in clusters of 7-8. Red and juicy with good tart tomato flavor. Good storing ability both on and off the plant. Deutsche Fleiss translates to ‘German diligence.’ It is consistently one of our highest yielding varieties. A Seed Ambassadors Project variety sourced from Gerhard Bohl, a seed collector in Germany. He said that out of the thousands of tomato varieties he’s collected, Deutsche Fleiss is one of his favorites, and we can see why!

Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil as early as February, but no later than April. Keep warm and well-watered. Transplant seedlings into 4” pots when they have their first two true leaves. Transplant into the garden after danger of frost has past, typically late May in western Oregon.

Seed Saving

Collect seeds from ripe fruit. Place in a small jar and add 50% more water. Wait for mold to form. When seeds sink and gel-sac is gone, decant to clean and dry on windowsill.
