Tomato, Sarah Purple (Organic)
Solanum lycopersicum. Pink. 65 – 70 days. Indet.
Early, very round, 4-8 oz pink fruit. Excellent, juicy, and flavorful. Thin skin is blemish free and tender. Sarah Purple is very delicious picked ripe from the vine. Vibrant pink fruit are captivating to look at. With limited historical information available, we think it is an old-fashioned heritage variety from Germany. Given to the Seed Ambassadors Project in 2007 by Gerhard Bohl, a seed steward in Germany.
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.
