Tomato, Vintage Wine (Organic)

Solanum lycopersicum. Pink with Yellow Stripes. 80 days. Indet. Potato leaf.

Pink skin with yellow tiger stripes. Voluptuous, slightly lobed, 6-10 oz flattened globe-shaped fruit. Good sweet crisp flavor and very productive. Holds quality well off the vine, better than other heirloom types. Thick enough skin for market farmers, yet tender enough for eaters. Very eye-catching and popular. Originally one of the breeding lines of Tom Wagner’s Brandy Stripe. It was then renamed and introduced to the seed trade in 1998 by K. Sahin, a seed company in the Netherlands.

Sow indoors in flats with good potting soil as early as February, but no later than April. Keep warm and well-watered. Transplant seedlings into 4” pots when they have their first two true leaves. Transplant into the garden after danger of frost has past, typically late May in western Oregon.

Seed Saving

Collect seeds from ripe fruit. Place in a small jar and add 50% more water. Wait for mold to form. When seeds sink and gel-sac is gone, decant to clean and dry on windowsill.
