Tomato, Piroka (Organic)

Solanum lycopersicum. 75 days. Indet.

A very delicious main season fresh slicing tomato. The medium-large, bright red globes are 5-7 oz and very productive. Selected for greenhouse production, Piroka also performs well outside. Great as a salad tomato or sliced on sandwiches. We want to grow it every year, the flavor and texture just can’t be beat. Bred by Dr. Hartmut Spiess in Germany with the support of Kultursaat, a foundation dedicated to developing biodynamic seed varieties. We sourced our original seed from the German biodynamic seed company, Bingenheimer Saatgut, in 2006 during our first Seed Ambassadors trip.

Geographical Origin

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.

Seed Saving

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.
