Tomato, Rosabec (Organic)
Solanum lycopersicum. Pink. 60-70 days. Det.
An awesome early pink slicer tomato from Quebec with 6-8 oz, globe shaped fruit, excellent yield and flavor. Blemish free and good firmness make Rosabec a great market variety. Tall, determinate bushes are easily caged or staked with a Florida weave trellis. Bred by Roger Doucet in 1975 at the Station Provinciale de Recherches Agricole in St. Hyacinthe, Quebec, Canada.
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.
