Tomato, Siletz (Organic)

Solanum lycopersicum. 65 days. Det.

Superb, early production variety that is ideal for the Pacific Northwest. Heavy yields of big, juicy red slicers weighing up to 10 oz. Easy to grow, even in less than optimum growing conditions. Developed to be an improved Oregon Spring, it is indeed bigger and earlier with better flavor. Siletz is parthenocarpic, meaning it can set fruit without pollination, which contributes to its ability to thrive in cooler temperatures and yield many seedless fruit. Popular in our region for outdoor production on organic vegetable farms. Bred by Dr. Jim Baggett of Oregon State University and released in 1994. Verticillium and Fusarium wilt resistant.

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.

    Where did you grow this variety? Washington

    I had great success growing these in my outdoor garden with very little care. Very sweet, good for all applications. Everett area, near sea level.
