Planting Instructions for Sausage Tomato Seeds

Start Heirloom / Open Pollinated Tomato seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost date. Plant the Tomato seeds ¼” deep in sterile seed starting mix. Germination occurs in 6-14 days in soil 70-90°F. Once true leaves develop, separate Heirloom / Open Pollinated Tomato plants into 3-4″ pots, placing in full light & cooler temps (60-70°F). Set out hardened off Tomato transplants, in full sun, once soil has warmed, 18-30″ apart, in rows 3-4′ apart. Plant tall, spindly Tomato seedlings deeper, the stems will sprout roots and support and strengthen the plant. To help prevent blossom end rot, put 1 Tbs of lime, ground oyster shells, or crushed eggshells at the bottom of your planting hole. The calcium will help build strong cell walls once your heirloom tomatoes plants start producing fruit. For strong tomato plants, add 1 Tbs of aged compost and 1 Tbs of bone meal to the bottom of the hole as well.

    The moisture content of these tomatoes was perfect for roasting and making into a hearty tomato sauce. The flavor is very rich. And, when they say they are prolific producers, they aren’t kidding!

    To me these are the best tomatoes to can as whole or chopped. I had them about 20 years ago. When I found out st. Clare’s I knew I would be assured of a good harvest

  3. Catherine Worley (verified owner)

    I am amazed at the production of these plants. I have had paste tomato plants before but gave up on them because I needed so many plants to get the amount of sauce that I like to can. Not these! The size of the tomato is nice too and well as the flavor. I would definitely recommend them!
