Tomato, Mavritanskite (Organic)
Solanum lycopersicum. Maroon/Brown. 75-80 days. Indet.
Big, 6-14 oz beefsteak fruit are dark orange-red with some elusive purple shades. Tops are greenish-brown. Striking unique colors and an excellent smoky rich flavor. This is a really great tomato. Latvian heirloom we originally sourced from Madeline McKeever of Brown Envelope Seeds in Ireland.
Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil as early as February, but no later than April. Keep warm and well-watered. Up pot seedlings into 4” pots once they have two true leaves. Transplant into the garden once danger of frost has passed.
Collect seeds from ripe fruit by squeezing into a jar and add 25% more water. Wait a few days for mold to form. When seeds sink and gel-sac is gone, stir, add water, then decant and rinse to clean. Dry thoroughly. Tomatoes are mostly self-pollinating; isolation is not usually needed for seeds to be true to type.
