Prepare soil well with compost and fertilizer. Plant tomatoes several inches deeper than they were growing in containers. Provide strong stakes or tall wire cages at planting time as these plants grow tall with heavy fruit loads. Mulch to provide the even moisture tomato plants need to prevent cracking. Don’t overwater once fruit begins to ripen.
HARVEST AND USE
Pick the pear-shaped fruits when fully colored for best flavor. Enjoy for sweet snacks any time. Sprinkle liberally in salads where their pretty shape and bright color add wonderful eye and taste appeal.
