This heirloom tomato was brought into the seed store by a local gentleman who had been saving the seed for many years. His family brought this variety to the USA when they immigrated here.
German Lunchbox produces terrific fruits that are the size of a small egg, vibrant pink, sugar sweet and just begging to be eaten. Perfectly sized for salads or putting in a lunch box! Indeterminate. (70-80 days)
Each packet contains approximately 25 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.
