Green means go for this gorgeous beefsteak variety from Greenville, Tennessee. Aunt Ruby’s Green Tomato kicks out fruits that are 4-5 in. across and weigh a pound or more! When you pick these by feel (not color!) you’ll be rewarded with a juicy, spicy flavor. Indeterminate; ready 80 days from transplant. Certified organic!
Each packet contains approximately 50 seeds.
Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Start indoors and transplant to the garden after the last frost date. Choose a sunny location and provide plants plenty of room by spacing two feet apart in rows separated by five feet. Provide support and mulch well to conserve moisture and reduce weeds.
Fruit that is fully ripened on the vine has a much fuller flavor than fruits that are picked early and then allowed to ripen. However, if temperatures drop, you’ll want to bring all fruits (green or not) indoors. Store in a cool, dark spot — or paper bag — and green fruits will turn red within a week or two.
