Pacific Northwest Grown,
Open Pollinated, and Organic Seed

Tomato, Pusztakolosz (Organic)

Solanum lycopersicum. 80-85 days. Indet.

Large, 5-6″ wide, 16-24 oz beefsteak fruit. Plants are very vigorous and have very leafy, thick growth. Originally from Cluj, a city in Transylvania, Romania. Many Hungarians live in Romania and the name Kolosz is the Hungarian name for Cluj. Puszta means prairie. Good thing Andrew looked that up because Sarah thought the name just meant ‘pretty colossal,’ which would be a fitting name for this variety. We saw this type grown by subsistence farmers in Transylvania. Many old timers told us they wish they still grew it because modern hybrids have taken their place in markets, and they don’t taste as good. Given to The Seed Ambassadors Project by Gerhard Bohl, a seed collector in Germany.

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.
