Tomato, Pruden's Purple (Organic)

Solanum lycopersicum. Pink. 70-75 days. Indet. Potato Leaf.

This is one of the more common tomato varieties that we feel compelled to add to our catalog because it’s just so excellent. Beautiful, giant, pink fruit that no tomato lover could possibly resist. Earlier to mature and more productive than the classic Brandywine, Pruden’s Purple still develops that sweet heirloom flavor even in cool summers. Silky texture is great for fresh eating, whether on sandwiches or just sliced with a little salt. Yum! Fruit range from 10-16 oz, have excellent flavor and texture, and resist cracking. An incredibly easy to grow variety for its size. Remarkably healthy plants late into the season, probably because it is resistant to many foliar diseases and is even reputed to have some field resistance to the dreaded tomato blight. Very high performing for an old-fashioned tomato.

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.
